The credited vote of the candidates at the head of this column is the 
actual earned vote and relative stand ing of each contestant on their first 
report to the Campaign Manager.. 

A grand total of twenty one entered the campaign, but some oi 
them have withdrawn, however there is room for several more real ac- 
tive workers who can if they will trv --' ,pne of the grand capital 
prizes. It is indeed not too late to enter. Clip the nomin»tin« *™. 
pon today and get in m w far a big prize. 

Today brings the beginning of the 
real race that is on for the $2,000 
. prize list that the RECORDER is to 
give sway in the Prise Distribution 
Campaign in its efforts to increase 
the circulation of this paper. 

By • persual of the list of con- 
testants our readers will see that we 
have a splendid list of entrants. Just 
who will prove to be hard workers 
remains to be seen. Only those who 
contemplate sticking in the race un- 
til the final count can hope to win 
ana of the grand capital prizes. Look 
at 'tile list and see if you can pick 
out the quitters or the ones who are 
likely to get scared and throw up 
their hands. You may get fooled on 
some Of them. They may be made 
out of different kind of stuff than 
you think they are. The RECORDER 
is especially proud of this list of 
nominations. They are representa- 
tive people of the county and come 
from our very best families. This 
raoe should be nothing more than a 
horse race from start to finish for 
they are all equal to the emergency 
provided they try. 


Of course the campaign is slow in 
getting under way. Only a small 
number of subscriptions have thus 
far been turned into the campaign 
department. The gross receipts are 
not more than 26 per cent what they 
should be at this period but we are 
hoping that things will begin to pick 
up on the next report of the candid- 
ates. Some of the workers have al- 
ready weakened a little by paying 
attention to wild rumors that some 
of the contestants or their friend i 
are putting ouC Just remember that 
these bife claims are made for no 
other purpose than to scare some 
one. The contestant that talks the 
lea it generally has the largest and 
best report to turn in report day. 

Candidates are warned that unless 
a subscription report is brought or 
mailed to the Campaign Department 
at least once each week, as is re- 
quired by the rules, their name' will 
be taken from the list and their 
credits cancelled. This is final.

Special Correspondent of the RE- 

Tbe Adraini.Ulion'i proposal to 
increase postal rates on third and 
fourth class matter has an/used the 
wrath of most of the newspapers as 
they would have to foot most of the 
bill. Hearings on the bill carrying 
the new scale worked out by Post- 
master General New, have been rush- 
ed to a close by the joint Postal 
Committee of Congress so that the 
legislation can be brought out in 
the Senate and acted upon immed- 
iately after the holiday recess. The 
rate boosts are calculated to bring 
about $68.000\Q<»0 ■* a yenr which

ployes, in accordance with the wishes 
of the President, who vetoed the 
first pay increase bill. 


manager at least three or four times 
a week. He might be able to give 
you some information that would 
help you. Then too he will know 
that you are alive and working. 

Who will win that Essex Coach, 
that is the all absorbing question 
that is now agitating the minds of 
the people of Boone county. We car 
tell you now. The one that works 
the hardest will drive that beautiful 
car home Saturday night February 
14th. Won't that be some prize? 

Rule Number Two of the Rules 
and Regulations properly interpret- 
ed means that mothers, fathers, 
brothers and brother-in-laws, sisters 
and sister-in-law, uncles, aunts, ne- 
phews and nieces are the only ones 
barred in this campaign. Beyond 
that degree of relationship all are el- 
igible. All present nominations 
are within^he rules and regulations 


Now is the time to get in the run- 
ning. Keep busy. Work every day. 
Eventually things will begin to come 
your way and you will be surprised 
at the amount of subscriptions you 
will write. You cant do anything 
without putting an effort forth. The 
prises the RECORDER is offering 
in this campaign are certainly ex- 
tremely liberal and to win one of 
them you should bo willing to do a 
little hard work. The harder you 
work the larger the prise you will 
win. That is the way to reason it 

Candidates should keep in touch 
with the campaign department. This 
office is located in the Boons Hotel 
Building and the phone numb* ris 
80, the same as the RECORDER, 
and is open until 9 p. m., each night. 
Candidates should call the campaign 

Subscriptions to the RECORDEh 
in this campaign will not be taken 
for a period extending beyond 1931. 
Only those who are in arrears can 
take a subscription for ten years, 
and that subscription cannot be ex- 
tended beyond the stipulated vear 


Please be careful in writing ad- 
dresses of new as well as old sub- 
scribers. Get their correct Rural 
Route. If you do not do this it will 
delay us in getting them the paper 
and when you sell a subscription the 
subscriber will want the paper tq 
start right then. 

Pay no attention to false rumors. 
Some of the workers are going to try 
to bluff you out by telling around 
that they have several more sub- 
scription than they have. This is 
good propaganda. It weakens the 
worker that fall for these stories. 
Grit your teeth and get all the bus- 
iness you can, that is the way to win. 

The free coupon appearing in the 
next issue of the RECORDER will 
be good for TWO HUNDRED Cred- 
its, this change is made on account 
of the loss of an issue. Don't forget 
to get your share of the coupons ott 
of the next»iB8ue. 


Subscriptions paid into the RE 
CORDER office prior to December 
24th do not count in this campaign. 
If the subscription has been paid 
sine* that date then the votes will bo 
issued. Do not ask for votes on sub- 
scriptions paid before Dec. 24th. 

Hon. Sidney Gaines Judge of the 
Boone Circuit Court: 

We your grand jury for the Dec. 
term 1924, beg leave to report that 
we have been in session three dayi 
and have examined 18 witnesses and 
returned six indictments. 

We have examined the cot rt hotts-o 
and other county buildings and find 
them well kept and in good condition 
except some things that we wish to 
mention. We find that a new roof is 
needed on the Pest house and we 
recommend that some measures be 
provided to keep the water out of 
the basement of the Infirmary. , 

We find that a new fence is need- 
ed around the jail and a new roof 
on one side of the Public privy, and , 
we recommend that when this work , 
is done that a concrete walk be 
made on the west and south sides 
of the jail and that the entrance to 
the jail yard be at the southeast 
corner of the jail. j 

We also call the attention of the 
Fiscal Court to bad condition of the 
floor in the County Clerkfs office. 

Having finished our work we now 
ask to be discharged.

Miss Grethel Mae Bruce, daughter 
of Mr. and Mrs. P. E. Bruce, of Pe< 
ersburg, was married to Wm. Cave a 
well known man of Lawrcneeburf, 
Indiana, one day last week, at Law- 
renceburg, by Rev. Funtenbn.r. 
The many friends of the bride on 
this side of the Ohio extend to this 
young couple their best wishes for 
a long and happy married life. 

Having been notified by George 
Bachelor, of Split Rock, that some 
poachers had placed a wing net at 
the mouth of Woolper creek, Deputy 
Sheriffs Uts and Snyder hdrried 
hence early Friday morning. Th»y 
found the net with quite a nice 
catch of fish in it, but failed to land 
the law violators themselves, who 
were from Indiana. 

The officers dumped the fish back 
into the stream, destroyed the net 
and started home. As they were re- 
turning the Ford in which they were 
driving struck a slick place in the 
road and capsized. Fortunately j 
neither was seriously injured, though ! 
considerably bruised and shaken up ( 
The accident occurred between An 1/ j 
Cook's and W. O. Rector's on the 
Petersburg and Belleview pike. 


A Happy New Year for o-.i 
friends, old and new, and to th'- 
ones whose friendship we strive ta i 
win — we sincerely wish everlasting 
happiness, health and inestimable 
success during the new year. 

With grateful appreciation for the ' 
courtesies extended us in the past, 
and prizing beyond measure 
priceless, though intangible asset — 
your "Good Will" — we will seek tc j 
merit your continued conldence and j 
patronage and will labor to serve : 
you helpfully. 

The Recorder wishes its reade*s, 
advertisers, correspondents and it . 
vast army of friends .the best th • 
New Year affords. If there be any 
cloud, any sorrow, any grief, we 
hope that it shall roll away, and that 
1925 will bring them much prosper- 
ity and happiness.

The Wall Street Journal giv»s 
warning of a shortage and conse- 
quently higher prices for corn. It 

"Official estimate of the corn crop 
is 24,336,513,000 bushels against 
3,0535,567,000 a year ago and 2. 
906,020,000 two years ago. While 
this final estimate is 40,000,000 bush 
els less than the forecast a month 
ago, it was not unexpected. But it 
does however sharply call attentic?; 
to the fact that there exists a bie 
shortage in the corn supply. 

So, if you have a crib of good, 
sound corn, it will be a good thing 
to take care of. And with the cutting 
out of a tobacco crop, corn at above 
a dollar a bushel is not a bad sub- 


A marriage of interest to a large 
circle of relatives md friends was 
that of Miss Elizabeth Ryle and Mr. 
Edgar Acra, both of the Locus* 
Grove neighborhood. The young 
couple slipped away and went to 
Covington, where they were married 
last Saturday evening, Jan. S, 192?v 

The bride, who is a most charm- 
ing young woman, was born and 
•eared in Boone county. She is •» 
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ransom 
Ryle, and is one of the •" 
lar girls in tha f section of the coun- 

The groom is a son of Mr. and 
Mrs. Arch Acra, and is a fine younc 
man, and industrious young farmer, 
and is fortunate in winning this 
young lady to assist him in climbing 
the ladder of success. 

The Recorder, with a host of 
frieritis, join in offering happy con- 
gratulations and best wishes to this 
young couple.

John W. Rouse, one of Boone 
county's most aged and respected 
citizens, passed away on Wednesday 
Dec. 31st, at the home of his son

Kate K. Riley, widow of the late 
James L. Riley, died at her home in 
Ludlow, Ky., Tuesday December 30, 
1924, in her 68th year. - She had 
been in bad health for some time 
and her death was not unexpected. 
She was a daughter of Francis and 
Sarah J. Kreylich and was born in 
Kenton county near the place of her 
death. After her marriage to James 
L. Riley they resided in this county 
in the Bullittsville and Constance 
neighborhoods until a few years ago 
when they moved to Ludlow. Mrs 
Riley was a member of the Bullitts- 
ville Christian church and the Eas- 
tern Star Lodge, of Ludlow, and 
lived the life of n christian, and en- 
joyed the companionship of he, 
friends. Another good woman has 
lived her life and passed on. Funera! 
se rv ices were conducted at her home 
in Ludlow Friday afternoon at 1:30 
by Rev. Hagan, of the Covington 
Christian church and interment was 
in Highland cemetery. It has been 
but a short time since she erected 
on the lot in Highland a beautiful 
monument to mark the last resting 
place of her husband and herself. 
She is survived by her brother Ceo. 
Kreylich and a number of other rel- 
atives and friends. Undertaker C 
Scott Chambers had the funeral tie

Another California woman is dat- 
ed to sit in Congress. Reports from 
the Pacific coast indicate that Re- 
publican leaders there are planning 
to send Mrs. , - v * *_ to Wash- 

ington to fill oih cm? unexpired term 
of her bite husband, who represented 
California in the Hou^e of Repres- 
entatives for many years and who 
as chairman of tbe Military Affairs 
Committee drafted much of the war 
time emergency legislation including 
I the draft law. Mrs. Mae Nolan of 
California is now the only woman 
in the lower house. She was named 
to succeed to the seat of her hus- 
band upon his death. 

The Home of Foreign Affairs Com 
mittee has a delicate problem on its 
hands in the resolution of Congress- 
man Britten of Illinois calling for 
a conference for an international 
gathering of the white Nations bor- 
dering on the Pacific to discuss what 
he looks upon and what used to be 
considered the "yellow peril," mean- 
ing the growing power of Japan in 
world affairs. Britten's resolution 
brought the ire of the Secretary of 
State and other Administration of- 
ficials down on hi* head. With a 
view to showing the Japanese gov- 
enrment and people that the United 
States is opposed to any such con- 
ference, the Britten resolution is ex- 
pected U» be brought out and acted 
upon adversely instead of behisr 
merely ignored by administration 
leaders in Congress.

Reports persist that Curtis Wilbur 

is to retire from the Secretaryship 
of the Navy to become an associate 
Justice of the United States Supreme 
Court. Curtis was n juoye in Cal- 
ifornia when President <^oniidge 
brought him to Washington for the 
naval porti folio and his natural bent 
is the bench. He has had a hectic 
time in the Navy Department but 
continues to hang on in the face of

In accepting nominations candidate* agree to — 
abide by the above conditions. 

The object of this big distribution 
is two-fold, rrimarily to increase the 
already buffi subscription list of th>j 
advance subscriptions from presert 
or old subscribers, and at the same 
time to afford our friends and read- 
ers an u-.parflled opportunity to 
profit, and in a bigway, through their 
spare time during the next few 
weeks. So it is a plan that works 
both ways and to the ultimate goo-1 
of all concerned. 

In order to gain this end quickly 


and advantageously the most valua 
ble and attractive list of prizes ever 
offered by a local newspaper in this 
section of the county has been made 
ready for distribution among tho.^o 
who participate most heartily. 

Ambition and energy are the only 
requisites for success. The plat) 
adopted is the fairest and most im- 
partial conceivable. There will be 
no "double vote offers, extra prizes 
given, or any inducement whatever 
inaugurated during this competition. 
Neither will there be any long-tern; 

subscriptions accepted. The plan of 
the campaign is straightforward and 
simple, and is fully outlined in this 
announcement .Read it closely and 

Let it be understood at the very 
outset that thi3 is not a "beauty" 
nor "popularity" contest, but is ft 
strictly legitimate competitive prop- 
osition for enterprising men and wo- 
men, and boys and girls, and one in 
which no element of chance enter*. 
One feature of this competition in 
the fact that there will be no losers 
in this race. You must be active to 
end of campaign. l 

How Votes Are Secured. 

The next step is to call or write 
the campaign department for a free 
working outfit (consisting of a spe- 
cial receipt book, sample copies of 
the paper and other information re 
lative to launching an active cam 

Thus equipped, you have but to ?:o 
, to your fYiends and neighbors, rela- 
I tives and acquaintances and have 
i them clip the free coupons fro»u 
• their pa^. _ *^+~Zm ALit THERE 
I IS TO IT. However, «7cu Will not 
. ""^T unless you mcl. tjfc*. 
! start; and while it will not be a very 
! difficult matter to capture one of the 
big prizes, nevertheless it is neces- 
sary that you start early. You must 

plan out your campaign the same as 
any successful business man plans 
out his work for a season, and above 
everything else, let no one discour- 
age you, but stick to it to the finish. 
Anything worth having is worth 
striving for. Seven short weeks and 
you may be riding in your own au- 

It takes votes to win and .vote* 
are secured tr. two ways. First, by 
clipping the coupons appearing in 
each issue of the BOONE COUNTY 
. _ x/egin by gatherinc 

them NOV/. The only restriction 
placed on voting coupons is that they 
must be deposited at the campaign 
department of the BOONE COUN 

TY RECORDER on or before the 
expiration of the date printed there- 
on. Get your friends to save the 
coupons for you — they all count 
The other and faster way to get 
credits is by securing new and re- 
newal subscriptions to the BOONR 
COUNTY RECORDER. On each subr 
scription turned- in a certain number 
of votes are issued, the number 
varying according to the amount 
paid, and during which "period"' 
same are received at the campaign 
department (see ' schedule- -4 - • 
below), oo, *wu see, tfle more sub- 
scriptions you secure the more votes 
you can get and the better your 
chances are to secure one of the cap- 
ital prizes. 

How The Prizes Will be Awarded. 

The First Capital Prize $975 Es- 
aex Coach will go to the candidate 
polling the highest number of votes 
in the campaign. 

The Second Prize $176.00 Three-

action of the Democratic Primary 
Election, August 1st, 1025. 


It becomes necessary that the RE- 
CORDER doe* some straight talking 
to some of our subscribers, especial 
ly to those of our readers who have 
been receiving the RECORDER and 

may contain groat happiness, or 
jrreat sorrow and trial. The look 
ahead has the absorbing quality of s 
great drama, the previous story of 
which has been full of action, and 
now the -curtain rises on another 
scene, while human nature thrills 
with uncertainty. 

It is a time ofr both serious and 
joyful thoughts. The most whole- 
some natures make it a very happy 

settling for same at their conven 

ience. It has been a time honored I Pf * -10 "; . They wU1 not bo «° w tww

' ing faith that things come out pre" 
ty .well for courageous folks, and 
they have confidence that the new 
period of time will bring 
pleasant experiences. 

This is a point of view that is cal 


in tne Boone County 
CORDER office te send the RE- 
CORDER to residents of Boone coun- 
ty. This paper has never sent out 
duns to delinquent subscribers. They 
have all been permitted to call at

Light hearted people naturally see 

the old year out with jollity, which 
may he wholly innocent and delight- 

stood it. They know what the cus- 
tom was and always seemed to ap- 
preciate the fact that they were per- 
mitted to pay for the RECORDER 
when it was most convenient and we 
ilid not discontinue the subscription 
unless notified so to do. Some of the 
best people in the county have been 
at times way back on their subscrip- 
tion and instead of being a reflec- 

ful, but which often runs into dis- 
sipation. A splitting headache and 
dark brown taste on New YearN

will improve on its predecessors.

next year than during 1925 we find 
that the State Road fund is exhaust- 
ed and notwithstanding the fact that 
the advocates of the "Pay-as- You

for road purposes and that a bond 
issue was unnecessary, yet from re- 
ports that are being published in the 
pre3s practically no work will ba I 
done on the state roads during 1925. ! 
During the campaign last fall the 
advocates of the bonds maintained 
that they were necessary to carry on 
the road work in Kentucky and the 
condition of the state road fund 
bears out that condition. The de-

state make liberal payments for j

some cases amounts to as much a.-

road. The large number of counties : 
in the s ate are not in a financial 
condition to make these appropria- 
tions to the State Highway Commis^ 
sion in order to have roads built

• The Recorder Stands For 


Heretofore, I have written through 
these valuable columns to the un- 
thinking young friends, whom I con- 
sider just as bright and intelligent, 
if not more so, than some of the 
learned, cynical dry goods box wise- 
acres around the public fires, always 
ready for an argument. I do not 
care to argue upon these vital sub- 
jects of the laws of nature, that I 
write upen, as our actions are either 
right or wrong to the natural laws 
ef our bei"g, — if right, we are re- 
warded, ii* wrong, punishment is in- 
flicted, *n.-l ho argument will change 
the sentence or decree. I have writ- 
ten frr the young, realizing tint 
they will be in the political fields of 
the future, holding offices of trust 
over generations, bosrin^ rule, for 
degenerated corruption, against our 
State and our glorious union, repre- 
sented by the flag of colors — the Citf 
OM typefying purity, truth and 
chased Honor, that we are so proud 
of, or, for life-giving glory, making 
that old flag more glorious is possi- 
ble for those generations to bow in 
sublime reverance as the code monu- 
mental to our memory, as they sing 
"My Country T'is of Thee" we sing 
—realizing too, that their minds are 
tender, and easy moulded, like 
many of the mineral stratas of the 
earth, in the first stages of forma- 
tion— 4»oft and pliable to the sculp- 
tors hands, so that the dirtiest, 
roughest material can be moulded 
into the most beautiful and perfect 
pottery and statuary, which becomes 
hard as adament. Knowing too, it is 
easy to start a young mind for good 
or bad principles of life, but like the 
avalanches of snow of the Alps, af- 
ter starting down the mountain, no 
earthly power can stop or turn aside 
— knowing this is the characteristic 
of young minds, I study, consider 
and weigh the thought of the sub- 
ject of the laws of nature, that I 
write upon, to be reasonably sure of 
the right theory, before submitting 
to the press, knowing that the "sen- 
tence" of punicrh.... rft for violating 
such laws of nature, will be more se 
vere than any that could be devised 
far violating our statutory laws of 
"Blackstone" in our courts, where 
excuses and ignorance are not ac- 

X have been asked to write upon 
saute subject of the kind, more suit- 
aMe for those older in age. While 1 
da not wish to be presuming or ego- 
tiatcal in trying to tell older friends 
something they do not know, for 
that would be impossible, so I can 
only hope to bring the positive facts 
of nature's laws you do know, be 
fare you with the causes and effect 
•I the violation of such laws that 
has been experienced by all, as proof 
far I dare not "turn down" the re- 
quest, for as unreasonable as it 
seems, the "Good Book" says, that 
there is a bit of good for you and 1 
to do in the world — some one, that 
only you or I can influence for 
good, and such a chance to do so, 
may be given only once. If this is 
true, I bow humbly to the task. So 
I think the above common, familiar 
and postive scriptural declaration ns 
an interogational warning an approp 
riatc subject, to ba?e our Now Hfeari 
resolves upon. As we study and an- 
alyze those vital law? of our being. 
we find that they are based upon a 
joratic commercial scale of "Profit" 
aid "Loss." If we sow grain we ex- 
pect, and the natural laws are obey- 
ed, wo get an increase with a reward 
•f manifold times the amount vo 
have sown, but, if "mildue," "blast- 
ing," or any of the many ravages to 
our crops, set in — which I consider is 
caused through violation of some 
natural law — as much so as disease 
is to our physical bodies — the bal- 
ance sheet of the Books of Nature 
will show a loss — if gain is sustained 
througlTour power of will physically 
er mentally over the weak physically 
er through their ignorance, the ac- 
tion will be counted as a debt of 
"Loss" against us, which will and 
mast be paid, and, as our gain was 
manifold to the lad. If the loss is 
long in coming the resources of pen- 
alty is only gathering to be more 
severe and torturing in effect, for 

"'Vhateoe - sew,- tk*.t we 4,\sn 

shall and must Reap" to a profit or 
loss, is a fixed statute of natural 
law, as well as a Law Divine positive 
audita re, that cannot be evaded. 
Humbly and Respectfully, 

Burlington, Ky. 


Isaac Flick, son of Bashaba and 
Thomas Flick, was born in Pickering- 
ton, Ohio, Feb. 3rd, 1840, and de- 
parted this life Dec. Slst, 11*24, aged 
84 years. 

He was united in marriage to 
Elizabeth Rice, Dec. 18th, 1887. T> 
this union was born nine children of 
whom one daughter, three tons, and 
four grandchildren survive together 
with his devoted wife, three sisters 
and one brother, who mourn the loss 
of a devoted father and husband. 

He came to Kentucky in 1866, af 
ter the close of the Civil War. He 
enlited in the Union army, with the 
First Ohio Volunteer Cavalry, and 
served throughout with that division 
being honorably discharged at the 
end of the war in 1866. 

He has answered the last roll call.

Any social, civic or business or-

Any community that boasts of be-

Bigness consists in generosity. To

Dangerous Coughs 
Go Quickly With Old- 
Time P ine-Ta r Honey 

Perhaps the best remedy ever dis- 
covered for a persistent cough that has 
hung on and on, and which may de- 
velop into a more aerioua condition, is that 
old-time tried and proved medicine that our 
parents and grandpa rent* relied on-Dr. Bell's 
Pine-Tar Honey. The prompt relief is almost 
mistral, and a day's use will often break up a 
bad cough or cheat cold entirely. Doctors aay 
the pine tar quickly loosens and removes the 
phlegm and cc.-.ation which are th; i: 
caaaa ot the cough, also healing soreness, 
while the honey both soothes irritation ana 
gi vea a pleasant taste. 

But be sure youget the genuine and original 
Dr. Bell's Pine-Tar Honey, and no other. 
There have been many imitations, but the 
original is still the best, at it ia scientifically 
compounded of just the right proportions of 
pine-tar, honey and other healing ingredients 
which the best doctors have found to aid in 

Sick relief. Por coughs, chest colds, bronchi- 
and almost every other throat irritation, 
including children's spasmodic croup. Often 
stops a severe cough overnight. Dr. Bell's is 
only 90c at any good druggists.

tOONI <3 6 ft tf t T RECORDER 



Urging the necessity of a State 
printing plant to be utilized in the 
printing of the text-books for our 
graded schools, the Beattyville En- 
terprise employs some very convinc- 
ing arguments. 

Referring to a personage in Louk 
ville, self-styled the Educator, ho 

"He remained silent when told 
that Kansas put a 44-cent primer in 
the hands of her children for thj 
sum of 22 cents. He knew this be- 
fore it was printed in the Enter- 
prise, and he knows more. Evidently 
it is his business to know things of 
like nature. He knows this — Kansaj 
put out a $1.38 geometry for 75 
cents; a $1.38 United States history 
f r 69 cents and saved from twelve 
to 18 cents on music books. What 
has been accomplished with a state 
nHntJnir r>Unt in Kansas can be 
done in Kentucky. It should be done. 
It must be done. 

"The experience of Kansas is 
enough — the result of her efforts in 
the printing business are measured 
by the hundreds of thousands of dol 
lars left in the pockets of her citi- 
zens to purchase the necessities of 

These figures are very convincing. 
It certainly seems that something 
should be done to lower the cost of 
school books to ur patrons. The Beat- 
tyville paper is backed up in its con 
tention by a very worthy contemp- 
orary, The Lexington Herald. 


As President Coolidgc stated at 
the Chicago Live Stock Exposition. 
63 per cent of the agricultural pro- 
duction of the nation comes from 
live stock. These remarkable figure-! 
show that the American people are a 
meat eating nation, and they give 
reason to believe that there is ?. 
great chance for the development 
of the live stock business. 

As the country grows more pros- 
perous, not merely will the number 
of meat eaters be inceased, but 
many families which now feel they 
can not afford to eat much mear, 
will use this food more freely 
Young people who learn the live 
, stock business and, become skilfui 
in the care of farm animals, are 
devoting their attention to an indus- 
try that is sure to grow and be- 
come more profitable.

The annual Christmas pageant 
ami cantata given at the Christian 
church in Petersburg was largely at 
tended. Of such interest is this an- 
nual event that although the enter- 
tainment was scheduled for eight 
o'clock, the house was half filled by 
seven o'clock. The decorative scheme 
was tastily worked out in red brick 
columns, wallls and entrance snow 
capped and evergreen flower decked, 
all with a back ground of white. The 
overhead decoration was of green 
and red rope interspersed with 
Christmas bells. The pageant was 
made all the more effective this 
year by the procession of twelve 
girls dressed in white, carrying 
lighted candles and singing "Silent 
Night," the light from the candleb 
and a spot light trained on the man- 
ger, were the only lights during this 
impressive part of the pageant. As 
the girls approached the manger 
they knelt in a semi-circle until the 
conclusion of the singing of "Silent 
Night." The cantata, "The Real San- 
ta Claus" was then presented by 32 
boys and girls of the Sunday* school. 
Drills, chorus selections and solos 
revealing the plot of St. Nicholas, 
Jr., appearing as the. Senior St. 
Nick, only to be routed by the ap- 
pearance of the real Santa Claus, 
constituted the greater part of the 
pay. While the drills songs and plot 
unfoldings by the Fairies, and 
Christmas cadets, deserve special 
mention, the drum stick corps of 
eight drummer boys was an especial 
feature of the program. Millard Fil- 
more Nixon as Santa Claus Jr., ful- 
filled every enflMph/q. in a- splen 
didly played roM Jfc-duet By Misses 
Irene and MaulflsnWiire, Miss Cor- 
delia Berkshire, MrT Edward Helm 
and M '. Millard Filmore Nixon were 
featur W rf tf'splaying unusual talent. 
Too much cannot be said in praise 
of patr;n«'> and willingness of the 
pianist Mrs. Alberta Kelly Stephen- 
to make the contest a success. 

A very enjoyable and profitabl 
afternoon was spent by more than 
50 patrons of the school and citizen.; 
of thi^ community at the Petersburg 
school year. From the Primary room 
trary to the usual custom of enter- 
tainment and bazaar, friends and 
patrons were invited to a display 
and exhibition of work done in each 
grada- of the school during this 
scblrol year. From' the Primary room r 
to the High School rooms, a spirit 
of rivalry prevailed in decoration of 
rooms and exhibition of written 
work, drawing, needlework, cooking, 
handicraft and manual arts. A money 
prize of $1.50 was offered for the 
best plate of biscuits, baked by the 
girls of ine *x»gh Sfhool. Miss Ruth 
Chambers of the class of 24-25 was 
the winner of this contest. Of espec- 
ial interest was the display of the 
Mechanical Drawing work done by a 
voluntary class of five members of 
the Senior class, meeting with their 
instructor an hour aft»r dismisal. 
each day. 

The needle work display of work 
done by the pupils during this school 
year received much attention and 
favorable comment. * 

The Manual training by the boys 
of grades as well as High School 
from flower stands, blacking boxes 
to toy sleds, carts, chairs, bird hous 
es and development of transporta- 
tion, was of especial interest to par- 
ents of the boys and their friends. 
Ah exhibition of a concrete cross- 
ing culvert constructed by the boys 
of Freshmen and Sophomore classes 
showed the practical side of the 
training in this department. A name 
card on each desk and a display of 
note book and especial work made it 
possible for parent and friend to 
inspect work of pupil more closely. 
Prompt 'y at 2 o'clock the visitors 
were invited Jnto the auditorium 
where an hours entertainment of 
speeches, songs and stunts by the 
grades were concluded with exper- 
imental work as conducted in class 
rooms by Biology class. All were 
interested in the new piano recently 
purchased for the school. An enroll- 
ment of 166 out of school census of 
174, bespoke an interest in a new 
school year of which the foregoing 
is an evidence of the spirit of co- 
operation of. teachers, pupils, patrons 
and the public in general.

'Twas the week after Christmas 

And all thru the town, 
After one week of pleasure 

We all settle down. 

The ladies exchange all 
Their presents with care, 

If the donors were watching 
Of course they'd not dare. 

While Bob with his, necktie 

And pa with his cap, 
On the top of his head 

Makes him look like a sap. 

Of course its too small 
And the color don't suit, 

On a boy ten years old 
It would look rather cute. 

And slippers we find 

Under everyone's bed, 
All the shades of the rainbow 

They're green, white and blue. 

Some mottled, some pink 

Some too large, some too small, 
Make you look like a "flapper" 

Goloshes and all. 

Tis a long time to wait 
Till "Old Santa" does come, 

And Tommy looks sad — 
There's a hole in his drum.

Boone County Recorder is offering 
in its Subscription - Building Cam 
paign is now on. Every section of 
Boone county is represented in this 
grand free for all handicap. 

Mrs. Delle Goodridge Collins, Un- 
popular daughter of Mr. and Mrs. 
W. H. Goodridge of Florence, now 
occupies the envious position as 
leader in the count of the votes as 
made in the Campaign Department 
last Saturday night at 9 p. m. It 
ia now up to this young lady to hold 
her position. A number of the con- 
estants are right at her heels and 
with a few days hard work it might 
mean that Mrs. Collins would be 
outdistanced. Of course the race is 
young yet. Only a comparatively 
small amount of money has thus 
far been paid into the Campaign De- 
partment by the contestants. Witn 
a list of two thousand dollars in 
prizes it will take some time yet for 
that amount to be collected by all 
the contestants. We are hopeful 
that the original cost of the prizes 
will soon be realized and it can be 
if the contestants will continue their 
present activity. 

All the workers are to be com- 
mended for the splendid efforts put 
forth during the last week. And 
now the ones that continue in 
their present stride will be found 
among the prize winners in the final 
count. The one that weakens now is 
lost forever. A faint heart never 
won a fair lady, and a scared con- 
testant never won an automobile. 
If you feel your feet slipping you 
had just as well get out of the way 
and let a fellow in that can run. No 
slow horses will score in this the 
greatest race ever staged in Boone 

Subscribers who have promised 
their subscriptions to various can 

1 didates should see to it that these 
subscriptions are given to the con- 

*" testants before January 24th. On 
that date there is a big drop in the 
vote schedule and the contestants 
will lose by further delay. Of course 

*or future reference. A subscribe! 
who does not pay when asked by 
his neighbors and friends will nev 
er pay. We understand that. 


MrB. Delle Goodridge Collins 
no doubt enjo yin g t h e s eat of bono, 
this week. She knows how hard she 
worked to get there. 

Albert Willis scored heavily or 
the new subscription offer. He gal- 
loped several miles to get his list 
of new subscribers before he came 
home with the bacon. 

Miss Francis Virginia Berkshire 
surprised her self by the number of 
subscriptions taken during the week. 
We feel certain that her mother 
helped some too. 

Miss Fannie Lois Cotton comes 
from way down the list to a place 
of honor this week. Miss Fannie 
Lois will poll a heavy vote in the 
south end. 

Lee McNeely is all swelled up 
this week. He comes from almost 
the bottom of the list to nearly the 
top. Lee is hinting to his friends 
that he has his eye right square on 
the Essex Coach. 

Miss Cecile Brown, the hello girl 
at Walton, is answering her calls 
with a sweeter tone of voice this 
week than ever before. Cecile be- 
lieves in herself and jumped out 
and wrote a nice bunch of sub- 
scriptions right off the reel. 

Elmo Jergens, of Ludlow, is a 
young campaigner, but he tells his 
neighbors straight from the shoul- 
der that he fs in this campaign and 
asks for their 6ubcsriptions. 

Down near Hebron lives Mis* 
Georgia Burns, and the people down 
that way have just begun to find 
out that this little lady is in the 
campaign to stick. 

Mrs. Alberta Kelly Stephens will 
doubtless enter politics after this 
campaign is over. She has a con- 
vincing argument and winsome 
ways. Anyhow she has a right to 
believe that she can get 

Mrs. Alma Glacken is another 
formidable candidate for one of the 
big prizes. She is working her"ter--f~ 
ritory with vim and vigor. Keep up 
the good work, Mrs. Glacken. 

A late entrant was Mrs. George 
Kottmyer, of Constance, but we arv 
not exaggerating one bit when wj 
say that she has been hitting telling 
blows from the very moment she 
entered the campaign. This lady has 
her eye on the grand capital prizp.

Aged 77, Passes Away at The Home 
of His Daughter In Erlanger. 

Again we are called upon to 
chronicle the death of another who 
was born and spent his entire life 
in Boone county. James Taylor 
Gaines died Sunday morning at 7:30 
at the home of his daughter Mrs. 
Chester Davis, in Erlanger, after an 
illness of several months duration. 
He was born near Bullittsville La 
1848, was a son of Edwin M. and 

time will be required for the en 
tire working force of the Associa- 
tion to make the caclulations and 
prepare the checks for signature. 

Some further idea of the magni 
tude of one of these great 6ales may 
be gathered from the fact that th" 
50,000,000 pound purchase of Bur 
ley tobacco by the R. J. Reynolds 
Tobacco Company, according to one 
of the Association't> statistical ox 
pert.s would make a solid freight 
train twenty-three miles long. 

Counting fifty loaded cars to the 
train it would require sixty-two 
trains to haul the tobacco, as each 
car will contain sixteen hogsheads 
of approximately 1,000 pounds each. 

As three pounds of tobacco are 
required for the manufacture of 
1,000 cigarettes, this fifty million 
pound purchase would make 16,- 
666,666,000 cigarettes or more than 
one-fifth of the number manufac 
tured in 1924 in the United States

This is a home paper and the can-

and we predict that every red- 
blooded Boone countian will reg- 
ter his or her vote for their favorite 
candidate in this election. There are 
but few grouches in Boone county 
and these will be known by name 
and number before the close of tho 
race. Some few have indicated that 
they intended to repudiate their

that the national increase in grain 
values amount to $550,000,000. 
Oats alone were responsible for a 
gain of 1 Ya millions, while wheat 
brought farmers of this state an 
added three millions and com an 
extra 1 % million, while the wheat 
brought farmers of this state an ad- 
ded three millions and corn an extra 
one and one-half million over last 
year, the report states. 

While the Kentucky corn crop for 
1924 fell considerably below that of 
the preceding year, the better pries 
this year brought the total income 
to 8'JVk million dollars as compared 
with 88 millions the year before. 
The 1 million bushel increase in the 
wheat crop this year brought the 
value up to $8,250,000 as compared 
with $4,250,000 of 1923. The oat 
crop of this state this year is up to j 
5*4 million bushels as compared 
to 4 % milion the year before with I 
the resblt that farmers will have ' 
taken in 4% million dollars on this | 
crop as compared with 3 millions thi ! 
year before. 

The yield per acre on corn in 
Kentucky the report states, dropped 
to 22.7 bushels per acre as a result 
of unfavorable weather, but tht 
profit per bushel to the farmer was 
24 cents as compared with 19 the 
year before. The wet days, on the 
other hand were a great help to the 
wheat and oats production, the for- 
mer rising to 13.5 bushels per acre 
as compared with 12.4 the year be- 
fore, and the latter to 24 from 21 
in 1923. The profit per bushel of 
wheat this year was 36 cents where 
it was an even break last year and 
14 cent profit in oats for the ll)\

And everything we And to do- 
Let's do it "with our might."

The publishers of th*> Boone d. 
Recorder h.v« boon contemplating 
for some time the raising of .the 
subscription rates to this paper. We 
did not deem it practical to make 
the new rates effective prior or dur- 
ing our present subscription cam- 
paign. V- desire now to make pub- 
lic announcement that on the 15»l> 
day of February, 1925, the day fol- 
lowing the close of onr campaign 
that the regular subscription price j 
of the RECORDER will be $200 
per year. This raise is absolutely j 
necessary on account of the increased . 
price of news print and other csots 
incidental to the production of the 
paper. The RECORDER is one 
among the last of the old establish- 
ed papers in Kentucky to raise its ' 
subscription rate. This raise will | 
not be effective during the. present 
campaign, and according to the rules 
of the campaign you will be permit- 
ted to take advantage of the old rate 
as far in advance as 1931, but the 
new rate will positively take effect : 
upon expiration of the time for 
which you subscribe during the cam 
paign. It will be our uppermost i 
desire to make the paper well worth I TstZadT- 
the price of your subscription.

Persistent, racking coughing, which 
by rapidly weakening your entire sys- 
tem lays you open to more dangerous 
infections, can be checked often with the first 
dote of that old-lime tried and proved remedy 
—Dr. Hell's Pine-Tar Hooey. And there's a 
rear-in. Doctors say there is nothing like pine- 
tar to quickly loosen and remove Die phlegm 
nnd congestion which are the direct cause of 
the coughing, while the honey both gives a 
pleasant taste and helps soothe irritation. It 
is often astonishing how quicklythiscombina- 
tion relieves the stubliornest cough. 

But be sure you get the original Dr. Bell's 
Pise-Tar Honey, and no substitute. Dr. Bella 
has been known for overaquaxterofacentury 
as the best. It is scientifically compounded of 
Just the right proportions of pin<*-tar. honey 
and other quick-acting healing ingredients 
which the best doctors have found to aid in 
quick relief. Contains no opiates or other 
harmful drugs, so can be given even to young 
children— fine for spasmodic croup. If you 
want the best, a medicine that often relieves 
the severest couyh ovei night, make *ure yoif

In many country town schoo's 
through the winter, the teachers and 
children are devoting considerable 
attention to gvtting up entertain- 
ments. Such attempts are some- 
times criticised, on the ground that 
they divert the attention of the 
young folks from their regular les- 
sons. Yet on the whole these enter- 
tainments, if they are not permit- 
ted to absorb too much energy 
would seem to serve a very uesful 

Country town children are usual- 
ly intelligent, as the result of faith 
ful study. Yet there are many of 
them who are very bashful as the 
result of living in a quiet way at 
home, and not having much chance 
to go into company and do things 
at public functions. 

If you take a bunch of such 
young folks and give them parts in 
a little play or recitations and songs 
to present, they acquire the ability 
to do things in public, which adds 
to their eslf confidence. It will give 
them power to take their own part 
in their later experience. 

It is a fine thing when the par 
enta of such a group of children 
arc brought together. Many of then- 
may not have known each other 
before. Some of them feel awkward 
and embarrassed, as if they wen- 
stranger sand away from home. 

The fact that they all have i 
common interest in these chidlren, 
draws them together, and helps y 
them get better acquainted, so that 
they feel happier in their surround-

A good school entertainment is 
an advertisement of what a school

will miss something and fall behind

the school work offered by theic 
home towns. It induces them to 
take advantage of all the educa-

The business of making record* 
extends far beyond records for talk- 
ing machines — it is a business that 
should engage the earnest attention 
of every young man and woman in 
the nation. 

The woods are full of men and 
women who have made records — 
some good, some bad — but the re- 
cords we rfeer to are records that 
you and your parents and friends 
will be proud of. Make a record. It 
pays to make a record whether you 
are a mechanic, a clerk, a steno- 
grapher, a laborer, a manager, an 
executive or a student. 

Make a record of some kind. You 
can make a record by sticking to 
yoUr job, or by doing youf work bet 
tor than it has been done before. 

The young man or woman who 
makes a record either in school or 
on their job, no matter how slight 
it may be, is the one to be promot- 

It pays to make a record. Do your 
work and go through life in such a 
way as to stand out from the com- 
mon crowd. Don't be mediocre. 

Remember the words of Andrew 
Carnegie: "Do not be content with 
doing only your duty. Do more than 
your duty. It is the horse that finish 
es a neck ahead that wins the race"

There is something very fine and 
splendid about the type of women 
chat you see in country towns and 
out on the farms. There is a lack of 
that shoddy and pretentious spirit 
that is so often seen in larger plac- 
es. * 

Women in a country town do not 
desire to make any special show. 
They shrink back from display, as it 
represents in their mind something 
insincere. They desire to appear for 
just what they are, and if they have 
any fault at all, it is in too much 
disposition to hide their real talents 
from the public. 

Their ambition is not to shine in 
society, but to make wholesome 
homes for their husbands and chil- 
dren. Their pursuit of these sub- 
stantial ends makes them very gen- 
uine. You feel you can trust them. 
Where many city women are wreck- 
ing their homes by too much pur- 
suit of pleasure or idle flirtations, 
the ambiti?;: of the country vwoir.rn 
is almost invariably to shine in the 
fine arts of the housewife. 

-i^fer gires our women a sense of 
real values. They almost invariably 
feel a desire for self improvement. 
If they were not so busy with a mul- 
titude of cares, you would find the 
great majority of them pursuing 
studies in some educational line. Ev- 
en as it is, a great many of them 
are reading and participating in the 
uiJCUbohjutT CSiricd on ir.-o«.- ^arioAs 
organizations. Their op'" irt R on pub- 
lic questions is remarkably shrewd 
and well informed, considering all 
the burdens which take up their 

With all their duties, they find a 
chance to carry on church and Sun- 
day school work and go in for var- 
ious community improvement pro- 
jects. No one need be discouraged 
about the future of the country 
towns, when you see how the women 
of the present day are carrying 
their heavy burdens of work, yet 
are constantly making progress to- 
ward a higher culture. 

Neglected Cough 
Dangerous— now to 
S top It Quickly 

When the delicate tissues of your 
throat are raw and sore from coughing, 
and your strength is exhausted with 
the constant hacking, you may fall an easy 

preytomoreserious trouble. So stop the cough 
the quickest you can, before it creeps too deep. 

By a very simple treatment you can stop the 
tpells practically at once, and relieve the hesT- 
lest cough often in 24 hours. The treatment is 
ba se d on a remarkable prescription known at 
Dr. King's New Discovery for Coughs, You 
simply take a teaspoonful and hold it in your 
throat for 15 or 20 seconds before swallowing, 
without following with water. It has a double 
action. It not only soothes and heals soreness 
and irritation, but it quickly loosens and re- 
moves the phlegm and congestion which are 
the direct cease of the coughing. With the 
eeeestreated in this way, the whole coughcoo. 
anion goes in a very short time. 

The prescription contains noopia tea orharav 
ful drugs. It simply helps Nature. It is for 
coughs, chest colds, hoarseness, bronchitis 
and spas m odic croup. Very economical, a* 
the dose is only one teaspoonfiu. Foraaleat

Twenty- two years ago, with the 
Holy Spirit as my guide, I entered 
the wonderful temple of Christian* ; 
ity. I entered ft the portico of Ge- j 
ncsis, walked down through the Old | 
Testament art galeries, where pic- 
tures of Noah, Abraham, Moses, Jo-- ;

on the wall. I passed into the music 
room of Psalms, where the Spiri: 
swept the keyboard of nature until 
it seemed that every reed and pipe

I saw telescopes of various size, 
pointed to far-off vents, but all con- 
centrated upon the bright and morn- 
ing star. ^ 

I ente re d t h e au dienc e ro om of - 
the King of Kings, and caught a vir- 
ion of his glory from the standpoint 
of Matthew, Mark. Luke and John, 
passed into the Acts of the Apostles 
where the Holy Spirit was doing his 
work in the formation of the infant 
church. Then into the correspond- 
ence room, where sat Paul, Peter, 
James and John, penning their epis- 
tles, I stepped into the throne room 
of Revelation, where towered the 
glittering peaks, and got n vision of 
the Kings sitting upon the throne, in

the nurses of the Bureau of Child

a little girl like this. The child had

difficulty but had repeated the fifth

nurse that she did not seem to bo

her arithmetic and that she would 
probably fail again that year. Wher. 
the child's vision was tested it was 
found that she was so nearsighted 
that she could not see the board

Mr. Sellards recommends a system 
of cutting in which the backbone is 
split and the upper third of the 
shoulder is removed. The removal of 
the upper part of the shoulder facil- 
itates the penetration of the cure 
around the shoulder blade, and con- 
sequently improves the cured pro- 

"I have observed that shoulder 
meat as ordinarily cured is strong" 
said Mr. Sellards. "Whereas there 
should be little difference between 
it and ham. It is recommended that 
the shoulder butt be used for saus- 
age, since a large percentage of lean 
meat is necessary for good farm 
sausage. A good proportion is three- 
fourth lean and one-fourth fat. The 
shoulder butt may also be cured, just 
as hams and shoulders are cured, and 
used for seasoning purposes. 

"We recommend that the back- 
bone be split. This assists in freeing

"Another factor in favor of mak- 
ing the pork chop cut is the greater 
value of this cut when sold to local 
butchers. It has been observed that 
there is in many cases as much as 8 
to 10 cents a pound difference in the 
price of old-fashioned backbone and 
pork chops. The pork chop is more 
desirable from the city butcher's 
standpoint, because his trade is ed- 
ucated to the use of pork chops. 

The question is often asked at 

Farmers sometimes grumble at 
the cost of education and enlighten- 
ed individuals among them know 
and admit that they owe a • great 
debt to the schools including the 
whole research system. But, accord 
ing to records compiled by the tin 
iversity of Illinois covering the per 
iod from 1913 to 1923, the mosi 
striking feature is the decline in 
students from the f arms': While the 
total registration increased 141 
t»".~ cent, those from the farms in- 
creased only 70 per cent. Children 
of skilled laborers increased 247 
per cent and children of business 
men show an increase of 169 per 

In the College of Agriculture at 
the same university less than 43 
per cent of the 706 students en- 
roleld last year came from the farm. 
Contrast this with the showing 
•made at the "diversity by the ch:I 
"dren of parents engaged in other 
occupations. Between 1913 and 
1928, the registration of the chil- 
dren of carpenters increaesd from 
62 to 318, mechanics from 52 to 
114, electricians from nothing to 
22, barbers from 15 to 31, miners 
from 19 to 55, painters from 8 to 
37, plumbers from 4 to 35, tailors 
from 18 to 56. 

The total of 994 children of skill- 
ed laborers registered last year 
contrasted with 244 in 1913. 

There is a inntangible but enor 
mous mass of benefits for the rural 
community through education. V.I- 
lage life is made sweeter and more 
tolerable by the development of 
intellectual interests. The exercise 
and straightening of the artistic 
faculties adds joy to lives which 
might otherwise be dull and vacu- 
ous. Thus contentment and happi- 
ness are fostered, and the country- 
side becomes more able to retain its 
hold on the people. 

Some definite practical effort 
should be made to remedy the con- 
ditions shown by the foregoing re- 
cords which are typical of other 
state universities. It is a matter in 
which all the people of the nation 
have an interest.

Increases in t axes may be tr aced 
largely to the craze for issuing 
bonds in which investors place their 
money and avoid responsibility in 
. paying for their just share of the 
cost of government. 

The dollar invested by labor, by 
agriculture and by commerce ought 
to have an equal chance with the

More than 500 Masons, members 
of the executive, legislative and ju- 
dicial branches of the Government 
in the Nation's Capital, were 'th? 
guests at a dinner given by Cathed- 
ral Lodge, No. 40, F. & A. M., in 
Wardman Park in Washington last 

The principal speakers were 
Judge Arthur S. Tompkins, chiei 
justice of the Supreme Court of 
New York State; Senator Fess of 
Ohio and Rev. Dr. Ze Barney T. 
Phillips, chaplain of Cathedral 
Lodge and rector of the Church of 
the Epiphany. 

The speakers were introduced 
by Eugene E. Thompson, masetr of 
the lodge, who declared that there 
were 364 Masons in Congress, 4 in 
the cabinet and 12 among the as 
sistant secretaries. 

Feature* of Program 
A novel feature of the program 
was the darkening of the room and 
the illuminating of a tableau, "Co- 
lumbia," at one end of the hall. The 
Washington Quartet, Mrs. Gawler 
and Mrs. Brylawksi, cabaret sing- 
ers and the Pemberton dancers fur- 
nished the entertainment. Various 
speakers during the evening stated 
that despite its youthful age of 12

The proposed Twentieth Amendment 
to the Constitution is a social ques- 
tion of the greatest magnitude and is 
being debated in almost every com- 
munity. It concerns the vital activi- 
ties of 35 per cent of our entire popu- 
lation. It affects the fundamental rela- 
tionship of these children and their 
parents and guardians. It involves 
the question of whether the parents' 
income permits the support -jof the 
child to the age of 18 years. It raises 
the question of wage competition in 
mine, mill and factory between the 
child and its parent. "To regulate, 
limit and prohibit the labor of persons 
under eighteen years of age," pro- 
poses an invasion of personal and 
civil rights never before advanced in 
this country, and it vitally affects our 
form of government. 

To some extent compulsory school 
'aws in most states remedy the evils 
'•omplained of by society, but it has 
been found that too often parents, 
through lack of means, become a party 
io evasions of the school law, and 
f'om this source comes a very pro 
nounced opposition to the proposed 
amerdtnent. In most workman* an 's 
families It Is absolutely necessary for 
ibe boy or girl of 16 years of afti to 
earn sufficient for their own suste- 
nance, and in man) cases to Kelp witti 
family expenses. . 

If the amendment becomes constl- 
lutlonal law it will mean not onlj a 
broad extension and application of 
the common community welfare pi in 
ciple, but it will also mean a n< fces 
sarily higher average wage for the 
head of the family. Hence opposition 
on the part of employers, lu view of 
recent history, however, this cannot be 
classed a hardship, because it has been 
repeatedly shown that an « inpioyer 
can afford to pay ?20 per day just as 
easily as he can pay |2— providing bis

ALBERT WILLIS, BullitttvilU. . . 

The above is the comparative 
RECORDER race for the Essex 
ed under tehrules to reserve a part 
scription payments, for the week 


standing of all candidates in the 
Coach, every candidate being nllow- 
of the votes issued to them on sub- 
ending January 17th. 

The Recorder race for the Essex 
"0" Coach and the other nine prizes 
is now half over. The bunch of favor- 
ites wifl enter into tine second ftt ( . 
next Monday morning. Those who 
have become leg weary in the first 
half of the race will doubtless now 
slow down and lat the racers who 
have plenty of pep left, pass them in 
the swing. We have several racers 
who now have a reason to claim that 
they have more than an even break to 
poll down the grand capital prize. 
There are more than half a dozen who 
can claim that distinction. Anyway 
we oan say to the world that we have 
an evenly matched race and that it 
is going to be more and more exciting 
as nearer the closing date approaches. 

Mrs. Qeorge Kottmyer, of the little 
town of Constance on the northern 
border of Boone County, comes Into 
the lime-light this week. Mrs. Kott- 
myer made a wonderful record 
for herself during the drive last 
week. The strenuous efforts put 
forth by this aggressive and un- 
tiring worker is making her one of 
the Recorder's most formidable con- 
testants in this, the moat exciting and 
interesting race ever staged In north- 
ern Kentucky. 

Nearly all of the workers hit a fast 
pace in their hunt for votes last week. 
Only two or three showed that they 
were actually outclassed in this Ken- 
tucky handicap. The leaders in the 
campaign enter the quarter stretch, 
you might say, neck and neck, and in 
a place or two they were nose and 
nose. It is indeed mystifying to those 
who are keeping their eyes on the 
race to see how close many of the 
candidates are running. If some of 
the workers actually knew how close 
they were crowded in this ircc they 
would not sleep well. Many have their 
finger tips right on the Eascx Coach 
and if She race liad ended last Satur- 
day night it 1b not an exaggeration 
at atl that the Recorder would harve 
had to supply another Essex Coach to 
have broken the tie. This statement 
while not verified, is not far fetched. 

From bow the. race will get more 
intensely interesting. We are looking 
for a break In the lines trlinost daily. 
There is surety some one of the racws 
■who will thTOWTTp" the spoiiee. .Inst 
whom it will be cannot be foreshadow 
od at this writing. All seem to have 
determination, grit, courage, pep find 
slick fb- the finish qualities, poasesHod 
cnilv by genuine Kentuckiaim. It Is 
now fatal to even admit that you are 
weakening. Determination and a fight- 
ing spirit can only hold you in the 
race down the home stretch. Who will 
win the Kssex Coach will 'in all pro- 
babllly be decided next Saturday night 
wrhen the reports are made >y all the 
candidates prior to the big reduction 
In the vote schedule. Subscribers who 
have made promises to the various can- 
didates to help them lb this race will 
do their respective candidates a great 
favor by handing them their subscrip- 
tions before the voting porter Is re 
dncsd on the I4th 

Candidates are now busy getting in 
all of their promises so thst they can 
turn them In before nex< Hntordsy

Get out and hustle up enough to fill 
either or both of these clubs and you 
will then be leading for the Essex 
Coach. Can't do it. Oh yes you can. 
If you try. You can't get 'em unless 
you make the effort. 

Whisperings By the Club Manager 

Lucy Garrison says that in Union 
there is strength. Pretty good slogan. j 
Keep your home flies burning, Lucy. 

Mrs. Henaley wears a smile up on 
th« northeast corner of her face. She j 
is grabbing subscriptions by the hand- 

Miss Cecile Brown is running a regu- 
lar marathon in her territory. It 
would take a deputy marshall to locate 
her when she is out campaigning. 

Mrs. Delle Goodridge Collins, dubbed I 
by the Club Manager as the Kentucky | 
Belle, is going a two-forty-gait and is 
making the dust fly, ao to speak. 

Mrs. Eva Kilgour is organizing a 
fighting force equal to an overseas 
army for tho final drive in her race 
for the Essex Coach. 

Albert Willis is still looking for one 
of the, big prizes. Better speed up, j 

Elmo Jcrgens will have to put the 
spurs to his steed or he is going to be 
left in the stretch. 

Miss Fanny Lois Cotton is still 
marshalling her forces In the south i 
end. I^ook out for this young lady. | 
she is considered a genuine dark horse 
in the home stretch. 

Lee .McXrely Is now stripped down 
to racing form, lie rides a while, then 
walks a while, und only rests once In ■ 
while, hut all the while rolling in sub- 
scr iptions, ■ 

This is a relay race, Miss Francis 
Virginia Berkshire. Bitter t 
steeds for the second beat. Try yotti 
best to come in next Saturday night 
with as large a list as you did two 
weeks ago. 

.Mrs. Keenc Souther is still receiving 
much e ncour a gement from her many 
i ii' ads, lietter pet out lor a tvnv-daysr 
don't you think. Mrs. Souther?

Much has been said of the drift of 
population from V" . ■> to 

the cities. Perhaps that tendency haS 

Si exaggerated. Prof^ Lively of 
> State -Cnlversily recently found 
IS per cent of the villages of 
Ohio lost population from 1910 to 1920. 
while 42 per cent grew and 10 per cent 
ledd their own. Those figures indi- 
cate, that in spite of the many oppor- 
tunities for jobs in the factory cities. 
Of that populous state, more than half 
of those villages held their own. 

As 1920 was a year when the fac 
lories were particularly busy, thus 
drawing in many people frniu country 
towns, the showing of stability in the 
rural districts was rather good. 

Some people have held that owing to 
improved machinery and methods, a 
smaller proportion of people can raise 
the food that the country needs, so 
that the rural districts do not need 
all the population they have had in 
the past. It is possible that a com- 
munity with 1,000 people, all of whom 
have profitable work or successful 
business, will have better conditions 
ihan one of 1,500, where there is not 
enough work to go around, and where 
people are suffering from too much 

Yet so many people have left the 
country towns during the past few 
yeare, that that drift has in all proba- 
bility been overdone. Whatever bad 
conditions may exist in America, have 
been largely due to the poverty of 
Europe, and the inability of those 
people to buy their customary amounts 
of goods. Now that crmdttirrjrs ure~ 
much improved, and most of the poo- 
pie of those lands are at work, there 
is every reason to believe that they 
will buy from now on a normal supply 
of American stuff. This means a good 
demand for the products of country 
farnas and factories, and plenty of 
work for All who like the wholesome 
and happy conditions of those com- 

Claimed the farmer is back in the

not risk losing his feed by throwing 
him off Into the ditch again. 

Some of the pepole who could not 
get out to the meetings of the com 
munity organizations last summer be- 
cause they were so busy with farm 
work, may not be able to do so now 
because they are so 6leepy evenings.

The Recorder Takes Great Pleasure in Presenting This Grand 

Galaxy "orstar Contenders for Honors in our 

Subscription Building Campaign 



From the extreme south end of Boone 
rounty the Recorder is proud to say ! Thc Reorder ha? only a few girls in 
that we have a representative in this ' this raCo aml Peculiar as it may seem 

campaign who will have strong haek- 

whea the list of contestants was made 

ing for first honors. We refer to Miss ' up alphabetically the four girls all 
Fannie Lois Cotton, the eldest daugh- c ' ime together in the list Miss Georgia 
ter of Mr. and Mrs. W. B. Cotton, of BurM - daughter of Cecil 

Verona. Miss Fannie Lois got a late 
start but by and with the assistance 
of her mother, and probably of her 
father, she has gradually and surely 
placed herself in a position that must 
be regarded aa dangerous to the other 
contestants that are seeking first place 
In this campaign. Her father, "Bill" . 
Cotton, the wheel horse of the south 
end, has a host of friends who arc eag- , 
erly watching the outcome of this race! 
and we believe that many subscriptions ' 
will be turned in by Miss Fannie Lois; 
during the refomtfder of the campaign, j 


In introducing Mrs. George Kott- 
myer in this campaign we want to men- 
lion that tlicro Kas not been a more 
<onscientious worker in any organiza- 
tion effort that was over before launch- 
ed In this county than Mrs. Kottmyer. 
Her work is splendid and her friends 
are now certain that she will be almost, 
if not at thc head of the list at the end. 
Mrs. Kottmyer is the daughter of the 

Burns, was 
one of the first to enter but on account 
ol having to go to school she has been 
unable to wage as aggressive a cam- 
paign as some of thc others, however. 
Georgia hopes to win one of the prizes 
listed. She deserves special mention 
for her ability to score some large back 
subscriptions. Miss Georgia is a very 
conscientious, pretty and deserving 
voting lady. . 


The Recorder*.** — , /,„ 

to present M-- Keene Souther of 
Ludlow, R. D. as one of the con- 
tenders for a prize in our compaigp., 
Mrs. Souther is the wife of Keeno 
Souther, County Examiner and for- 
mer well known local base ball

a correspondent of the Recorder and 
while her ac ivity in this can p.v .cm 
is not as extensive as some of the 
others yet she is doif»,a splendid

tic about her possibilities in this race. 

character and has many friends who 
wish her well in this campaign. She 
was formerly Miss Dora May Hood. 


Mrs. Thomas Hensley has as many 
well wishrrs and supporters iu this 
campaign as any candidate that we 
have herein presented. Mrs. Hensley 
is the wife of Thomas Hensley. nearby 
Burlington farmer, ami comes from 
one of thc old lino families of Boone 
county, the Sebrecs. Her winsome dis- 
position and her willingness to put in 
hard work makes her a real contender 
for the Essex Coach. She is backed 
by an army of friends with the assist- 
ance of her husband. She Is certainly 
putting up a fight that Is making some 
of our other workers sit up and take 
notice. Mrs. Hensley has kept up an 
even pace from thc very beginning. 


Toe Recorder does not have the 
Pleasure of reproducing a likeness of 
this worthy candidate, for the reason 
that we were not furnished a picture. 

Mrs. Eva Kilgour, of Hebron, was 
one of the first to enter the campaign 
and from the outset she has proven 
that the is sure enough business get- 
ter. Her reports are a credit to her 
candidacy and the Recorder recognizes 
In bar ono of the real contenders for 
the first prise. She is the wife of 
Harnett Kilgoirr, the well-known He- 
broa farmer, und the daughter of the 
lata John Conner, who was one of 
8« oa e eoonty m pioneer citizens. H Is

Here Is the bravest man In Boone 
county. Lee has fought his way to a 
most formidable position in this cam- 
paign against a squadron of beautiful 
women. And with the manly efforts 
that he is putting forth no one need 
be surprised if. he is declared the win- 
ner in the final count. Lee has taken 
the slogan — "work will win" — as his 
guiding post In this campaign and he 
Is right now putting in some telling 
blows that are making some of his 
lady competitors flinch. Lee McNeely 
la a real man, every Inch of him, and 
he is doing his full share to help make 
the Recorder campaign a success. "He

Mr. and Mrs. WBK T. Berkshire and

her candidacy. She Is being ably as- 
sisted by her mother, formerly Miss 
Mary Gaines, well-known Boone county 
school teacher. That she will make a 
good race is already conceded. 


Here Is a very aggressive and hard 
working candidate for the Essex Coach. 
Mrs. Lucy Garrison, Is the wife of Rus- 
sell Garrison, of Union, and Is a daugh- 
ter of George H. Stephenson, of Union. 
Lucy, as she Is familiarly known to 
her friends, is a great lover of outdoor 
life and her entry into the Recorder 
race has been more or less interesting 
and enjoyable to her. 8he loves horse 
back riding and she has possibly gal- 
loped more miles across thc hills of 
southern Boone county than any other 
contestant In the race. She is a na- 
tural born rider and if she wins the 
car she will have to give her beautiful 
horse some of the credit, as many have 
admired her strenuous activity and are 
now standing behind her in this race. 

Mrs. Garrison has proven that she 
has real business getting qualities 
and day by day she has enhanced her 
chances of driving away the Essex 
Coach as her valentine. 

Ludlow, R. D. 2 
Of the younger set we have for -one 
of our contestants Elmo Jergens, of 
Ludlow, Route Two. Elmo is the son 
of Henry Jergens, the well-known and 
thrifty farmer of that section and the 
Jergens family belongs to Boone's best 
representative citizens. Elmo Is a 
school boy and only gets to work after 
school hours. He does not hope to 
win one of the big prizes but Is still 
making an effort to get one of the 
smaller ones. Elmo la a good boy and 
we are glad to have him in the race. 


Statistics show that Fayette- county 
Tanners Ave years ago were spendiag 
for commercial feeds $3.60 annually far 
every acre or land in the county, ac- 
cording to Ralph Kenney, extension 
ngromomlst for the College of Agrica* 
tii re. He estimates that this feed bill 
has been greatly Incroased, and per- 
haps doubled, by now. 

"At least half of this big feed Itesa 
could be kept at home by growing a 
sufficient acreage of alfalfa," declared 
Mr. Kenney. "That this Is tree la 
proved by what has been done la 
Pendleton county, which has almost the 
same number of live stock, In propor- 
tion to Ra area. Pendleton county ha* 
11,000 acres of alfalfa, and its farmers 
spend only 47 cents per acre for nlaas- 
factured feeds. There Is a lairs dairy 
industry in Pendleton county, which 
mcaus that feed requirements aro 

Commercial feed coBts per acre of 
land in 17 other Central Kenteeky 
counties in 1920 were: Anderson, 16 
cents; Bourbon, 11.60; Franklin, 16 
cents; Harrleon, 80 cents; Lincoln, 70 
cents: Montgomery, $1.26; Shelby. 
$1.30; Boyle, $1.30; Clark, $1.10; Gar- 
rard, 76 cents; Henry, 81 cents; Madi- 
son, $1.08; Nicholas, 60 cents; Wood- 
ford, $2; Jessamine, $1.40; Mercer, 
$1.20, and Scott, $1.20. 

By counting 7 sheep or 10 hogs equal 
to one horse, mule or cow, the com- 
parative live stock population of the 
counties in question may be obtained, 
Mr. Kenney figures. Then, based on 
the amount of money spent for com- 
mercial feeds per comparable head ef 
stock, Fayette county leads with $S3.St. 
followed by others in their alphabetical 
order. Anderson, $6.43; Bourbon, $10; 
Boyle, $11.17; Clark. $7.87; Franklin. 
$7.44; Garrard, $6.20; Henry, $7.03; 
Jessamine, $11.86; Lincoln, $7.4Xr 
Madison, $7.66; Mercer. $9.46; Nicholas. 
$4.46; Pendleton, $3.86; Scott, $9.40: 
Shelby, $10, and Woodford, $16.80. 

Of the 18 counties which Mr. Kenney 
compares with Pendelton, only seven 
have a greater live stock population. 
Five years ago Pendleton county had 
! more alfalfa than any other Kentucky 
j county, and the effect on farm expen- 
ditures for feed Is shown to be re- 
; markable. 

Although the days are already a 
. little longer, no one has been discov- 
ered so far getting up any earlier 
in the morning. 

One of the very first to enter the 
Recorder campaign was Mrs. Alberta 
Kelly Stephens, of Petersburg, and she 
has been going a two-forty-gait ever 
since, not allowing any grass to grow 
under her feet. Mrs. Stephcus Is the 
daughter of the late respected Eugene 
Kelly, of Burllngton/*and is the wife 
of Albert Stephens, u ho comes from 
one of'ltoone county's most worthy 
families. Mrs. Stephens is coiulix-Cn- 
a clever campaign and she Is surely 
getting her share of subscriptions to 
the Recorder and if she keepi up her 
oresent pace there is no doubt about 
her having to be considered right up 
to last minute hs a strong competitor 
for first honors. This prediction i-; 
based on Mrs. Stephens record up to 


Walton is represented in our cam- 
paign by Miss C'ecile Brown, thc popu- 
lar telephone operator at that place 
and we pass it to the other candidates 
that hi this vivacious, peppy and con- 
scientious worker they have a foe 
worthy of due consideration, for Miss 
Cccile Is waging a well organized cam- 
paign to carry off first honors In this 
race. No one need be surprised to see 
her ambitions realized for she is cer- 
tainly nuttlltg real effort behind her 
candidacy. Miss Cecile is the daughter 
of Mr. and Mrs. .1. F. Prnaa, of Beaver 
Lick, and her old friend-, and neigh- 
bors are standing steadfastly behind 
her candidal y, as well as her home 
town of Walton. 


Albert Willis, of Bullltsvllle, is s 
young man of good standing in the 
community in which he lives and he Is 
making the effort of his life to make a 
good showing In our campaign. He is 
the son of the late lamented, Tom 
Willis, former assessor and well-known 
wheel horse of Boone county. If Al- 
bert shows any of the fighting spirit 
of bis father he will doubtless score 
one of the prizes In this campaign. 
His wife, formerly Miss Izora Aylor, 
Is giving his candidacy considerable 
thought and attention, and If Albert 
has the time to make n whirlwind 
finish he may score one of the listed 

Now and then there is a jury that 
has the nerve to return a verdict 
in accordance with the law and the 

One of the formidable candidates for 
first honors in this campaign Is Mrs. 
Holle Goodridge Collins, the accom- 
plished and extremely popular daugh- 
ter of Mr. and Mrs. W. II. Goodridge, 
lifelong residents of Boone County. 
Mrs. Collins has put pep, ginger and 
grit into her race from the very be- 
ginning, and with the assistance of her 
mother she has been right along to- 
ward and at the top of the list. Her 
friends are backing her to win the 
Essex Coach and it is our belief that 
her total vote will be of large propor- 
tions when the final count Is made by 
the Judges on Saturday night, Febru- 
ary 14. Mra Collins deserves to score 
u big prise. 

Many college professors are try- 
ing to rewrite the Bible, but most 
people will continue to believe that 
the garden of Eden was not e park.

The old myth about frighteuing

been dispelled. 

Scientists have announced that hie

round germ which throws off a poison 
that acta on the nervous system. 

The trouble maker has been tracked 
to Ita lair, finger-printed and made an

I brothers have before him.

Quite an interesting trial was be 
fore The County School Board, at 
the Court House, last Saturday af- 
ternoon, in which the teacher at the 
Midway School was charged with 
severely punishing some of the pu- 
pils by th patrons of the district. 
After hearing the evidence of wit- 
nesses of each aides in the case, the 
Board sustained the teacher. 

A school cannot be maintained 
without discipline, and the teacher 
should be allowed his or her pre- 
rogative in the administration of the 
school; but on the other hand, they 
should use much discretion in mak 
ing rules and in punishing pupils. 
The teacher should govern in law 
and Justice; and in that can*, it is 
nurpriaing to aes how apprec ia tive 
children and parents are of fa*d 
m-hool government, and of the faiUi 
ful sfforts of the ttaeher.

Most business failures are due t( 
timidity. A man is afraid to grasp 
an opportunity ami goes off to con 
suit a friend who doesn't know the 
proposition at all and he is discour 
aped because his friend hesitates 
to jxive a favorable opinion. 

Don't litsen to folks, who tell you 
you can't do this or can't do ihat — 
if you have any confidence in your- 
self or in the proposition go to 
it to win. 

Make friend.* with business peo 
pic. Business men have faith in th« 
young men woh are not afraid t 
take a chance and make a determin- 
ed effort. Meet your obligation i 
.promptly. Your banker instead of b: 
ing har:l-fistcd, hard headed watch-

AS A SEQUEL to the Scott expose, 
opponents of the dry law are seeking 
the enactment of legislation making it 
specifically incumbent on Government 
officials to observe the Volstead act 
as well as all other laws. AH such 
agitation does not originate with the 
wets, either, as witness the visit of 
John D. Rockefeller, Jr., and Judge 
Elbert H. Gary to the White House to 
urge President Coolidge to call upon 
all officials to rigidly obey the laws 
that they pass or that they are sworn 
to uphold and enforce. 

IN THE MEANTIME, the whole 
problem of prohibition enforcement is 
being given an airing by a Senate 
committee, but the public la not being 
let in on the affair, as the inquiry, 
unlike similar Congressional investl- 

What does it profit a man, if he

fits him nothing if he do'es not use 
the surplus above what he actuallv 
needs, for the good of others. 

He would *be unwise to retire, 
unless his condition of health made

would be unhappy in a life of ease

from the loss of his business judg-

A picture — An automobile filled 
with happy people returning home 
with thoughts of a happy Christ- 
mas; a steep grade at the top of 
which is a railroad crossing; auto- 
mobile engine chokes climbing hill 
and stalls on crossing; train run- 
ning fast to make up lost time 
snuffs out the lives of four persons 
and fatally injures a fifth. 

Another picture — A district 
school house packed to the doors; 
nearly all the bags of good things 
have been passed into anxious little 
hands; jolly Santa Claus reaches 
for the last ono and knocks over t 
candle on the Christmas tree; cot- 
ton used for decorations flames up; 
scores rush forward to put out the 
fire; the tree falls and the dry ce- 
dar pops as the blaze devours the 
dry branches; frenzied people break 
out window panes and the wind fans 
the flames; thirty-two dead all be- 
cause of thoughtlessness. 

This is not fiction but f:>.ct. The 
man who drove the automobile 
knew the train crossed the highway 
at the top of the steep grade and he 
knew the motor engines were likely 
to balk on cold days. 

But he didn't think. 

The Santa Claus who played with 
death in the little district school 
knew the danger of fire was gTeat 
and that lighted candles on dry 
Christmas trees decorated with cot- 
ton and flimsy ornaments were the 
tinder that might cause the tragedy 
which, was enacted. 

But he didn't think. 

When tragedy stalks, the princi- 
pals never think. And there's the 
pity. Countless victims fill graves 
all too soon because someone failed 
to think. 


A Chicago scientist says that the 
child born of older 'parents has a 
better chance of attaining distinc- 
tion in the world than one born of 
young parents. 

He asserts that his investigations 
covering a period of almost 50 
years shows many great men were 
born when their parents were well 
along in years and that most of the 
morons « had young fathers and 
mothers at birth. 

But is it an infallible rule? For 
every instance that he has cited, 
another one could probably ba 
found that would disprove the 

While parentage doubtless counts 
*v^»^ i ty.,.,1 - vn< j fi xe d rule by 

which the future of boys and girls 
can be estimated. 

There are poor boys whose par- 
ental influence was valueless and 
who, when they became great, for- 
got the struggles, the sorrows and 
the problems of the poor. 

And there are rich boys who 
would be expected to inherit with 
their riches a kind of contempt for 
the poor — not bitter, yet sneering 
or at least patronizing, but who be- 
come great public benefactors. 

To carry the contrast further — 
some preachers' sons become drunk 
arda and prodigals and some durn- 
kardV-sons become preachers. 

Thus it goes. 

And what does it all prove? 

Nothing much perhaps except the 
tangle of life and the uncertainty 
of all rules.

for Coughs. You simply take one teaspoonfu] 
and hold it m voir throat for 15 or 20 seconds 
before swallowing Jfc without following with

Many smart young; folks some 
years ago, used to refer contempt- 
uously to their communities, as "one 
horse towns." The phrase is not so 
common in these automobile days, 
but it deserves attention since it 
represents a common state of mind. 

"One horse towns" have sent out 
a multitude of wonderful younp 
colts, who have won the most diffi- 
cult races in the world's great show. 
These youngsters have entered the 
various competitions of the buainu** 
sphere, and have proved themselves 
i aster steppers than other* who 
eemirjrly had a better training. A 
very large part of the best work is 
done in one" htfrse towns by one 
horse teams of people. Tf a person 
has limited opportunities, such i 
'nek often Makes him more resource- 
ful and ingenious.

The trouble with a good many gar- 
dens is that they are too often last* 
minute affairs. A garden, at its beet, 
will furnish vegetables in some form 
the year around, if enough space can 
be provided. But even where space is 
no object, and even In cases where the 
large enough the 
too heavy 
_ and entirely 
cut off at others. 

Often the fault lies with the varie- 
ties chosen. The matter of seed buy- 
ing is put off until gardening Weather 
t comes, and after more provident gar- 
deners have selected the choice varie- 
ties. What is left is sometimes quite 
mediocre, and the garden is an uncer- 
tain xhlng. 

uuen'the method of fertilizing la at 
fault Garden crops are not all alike I 
in -the food they require, an* 1 ««•"- l 
'<-ufurhate top dressing with manure 
'may result in ton.atoes and potatoes 
with splendid tops, but no fruit to 
speak of, and radishes and turnips with 
ilust enough root to keep them from 
i blowing away. Yet, In the same gar- 
i den, the lettuce and onions and greens 
may be yellowed and small and quite 

Often the method of managing the 
garden is at fault Equlment pays in 
gardening as in other business. But 
many gardeners fail to give thought to 
their gardening equipment until the 
season 1b upon them, and the bugs and 
b;; 6 Ln descend. The only thing to do 
then is to fight with makeshift wea- 
pons, with the chances against the 
gardener and his crop. 

Proper garden planning will elimin- 
ate these troubles largely. To equalize

The 1041 acre tract is all bottom land and very pro uctive, located on pike and the Ohio 
River. Good brick house, good barn and other outbuildings. This is one of the best 
Ohio River Bottom tarms in Boone County. A Government light is located on this 
farm which pays the owner ot this faim $132 00 per year. 

The 122 acre farm is located near the 104 1-4 acre tract and could be handled *icely to- 
gether. This 122 acres is gdft productive land as well as affording splendid pasture 
with some timber. Two houses and two barns, crib and other outbuildings. There 
is a fraction over 97 acres in one tract of the hill farm and 24 3-4 acres in one tract. 

It is propsed to sell each of these two iracts of4he hill farm separately then as a whole 
to be sold the way the 122 acres brings the most money, or a sufficient number ot acres 
to be sold to raise the amount of money necessary to be raised. 

Purchaser must be prepared to give bond for the purchase price payable in six and 
twelve months. Easier terms can be arranged by seeing the Peoples Deposit Bank at 
Burlington, Ky., in advance of ihe sale. 

Prospective purchasers are invited to look at these farms before day of tale by calling en

The publishers of the Boone Co. 
Recorder have boon contemplating 
for lomi time the raising of . the 
subscription rates to this paper. We 
did not deem it practical to make 
the now rates effective prior or dar- 
ing our present subscription cam- 
paign. Wo detire now to make pub- 
lic announcement that on the IStii 
day of February, 192S, the day fol- 
lowing the close of our campaign 
that the regular subscription price 
of the RECORDER will bo $2-00 
par yaar. This raise is absolutely 
necessary on account of the increased 
price of news print and other csoU 
incidental to the production of the 
paper. The RECORDER is one 
among the last of the old establish- 
ed papers in Kentucky to raise its 
subscription rata. This raise will 
not he effective during the present 
campaign, and according to the rules 
of the campaign you will bo permit- 
ted to take advantage of the old rate 
as far in advance as 1931, but the 
now rata will positively take effect 
upon expiration of the time for 
which you subscribe during the cam- 
paign. It will bo our uppermost 
desire to make the paper well worth 
the price of your subscription.

have a Special Meeting at Walton, 
Friday Night, Jan. 28 at 8 o'clock. 
Visiting members are welcome. 

Out of more than 1600 auto 
license issued by the County Clerk in- 
1924, only about two-thirds oTHho 
owners have secured their 1926 tags, 

In this issue appears the statement 
of the ten banks in the county, and 
the two Erlanger banks. The fine 
condition of the county's finances is 
reflected by these reports.

J. H. Latham, of Covington, Dis- 
trict Deputy of the Modern Wood- 
men of America, was in Burlington, 
Monday afternoon. His district is 
composed of the Counties of Boone, 
Campbell, Kenton, Bracken, Pendle- 
ton, Gallatin, Grant and Robertson. 

Farmers in several Counties of the 
State have started a movement to 
raise tomatoes as a substitute money 
crop to take the place of tobacco. 
A representative of a Cincinnati 
Cannery was at the Farm Bureau 
Headquarters in Burlington, last 
Saturday afternoon, where he met 
quite a number of the farmers and 
explained his proposition to induce 
them to sign up for the raising of 
tomatoes. He reported that he had 
already signed about 400 acres in 
the County. As an acre of tomatoes 
will bring almost as much as an acre 
of tobacco, it would be a good thing 
fttr the farmers of Boone County to 
try the tomato raising. 


The cut-out board of directors 
es to commend the disposition as 
shown by the farmer to care for the 
interests of their tobacco tenants dur- 
ing the year 1925. 

Delegates from five states on No- 
vember 15th last, adopted a resolution 
pledging their counties to eliminate 
the 1925 crop of Burley tobacco. The 
cut-out has been declared on and In 
effect since that date. For the benefit 
of a few growers who still ask, "How 
Is the cut-out coming on?" the cut- 
out board of directors wishes to say 
plainly, "That It is not coming on at 
all. that It is all over with." 

It Is the wish of this organization 
that every Burley tobacco groweftttUy he is shaking hands 
understand that next year's crop iste» JJoone County people 
be eliminated 4n accordance with the X C haries Johnson spent 
pledges made by the delegates at the 
Interstate convention. 

The reasons for eliminating are, at 
this time, more generally understood 
than ever before. President Coolldge 
himself, said a few days ago, that the 
government ia willing to lend all pos- 
sible aid to the farmers, but the farm- 
ers themselves must bear the lion's 
share. The government, the bankers, 
no one, can do much for us when we 
have ourselves created a surplus of

By R. J. Matson, Co. Agent. ft UsUwi I i LLFiuUliL, 

Tile above is the comparative stanarng oi «.i» candidates up to 
Saturday night Jan. 24th, candidates under the rules of the campaign be- 
ins; allowed to withhold a part of thevotes that have been issued to them 
on subscription payments. 

Two weeks from next Saturday 
night the most exciting and interest- 
ing race ever staged in Boone coun- 
ty will come to a close. Only fifteen 
more working days remain. The time 
is short and it is now up to candid- 
ates to get a lead and hold it if they 
want to drive away that Essex Coach 
as their Valentine. 

Miss Cecile Brown, the popular op 
orator at the Walton Telephone Ex- 
change, is taking her spin at the 
wheel this week. Miss Cecile has 
worked hard for a place of honor in 
this campaign and we are going to 
take our hat off to her for the effect- 
ive work she has been doing. She 
is carrying her campaign into other 
counties and the success with which 
she is meeting is marvelous and most 
pleasing to the management of the 

There are many of the contestants 
right up at the top of the list. The 
difference in their standing is of 
small consequence. A day's hard 
work would make a great difference 
in the stantftng-of any one of those 
at or near the top of the list. 

AU sections of the county are now 
more or less interested in the out- 
come of this race. In fact there is 
not a spoyeft in Boone county where 
you will not find an enthusiastic 
booster for one of the candidates 
Day by day the race gets warmer 
Who will win -the Essex Coach is a 
horning question and will soon be 
decided by the votes of the subscrib 
ers of the Recorder. 

This is the closest race thus far 
y»t the Recorder Club Manager has 
ever experienced in the conducting 
of circulation drives. 

as these extensions will be checked 
from the original reports, and who 
'correct proper credit will be given 
Fill out the votes on your report 
sheets and run up the total count 


During the second period from 
Jan. 26th to Feb. 7th the Honor Roll 
will be established and the following 
offer will be effective. 

For the best cash daily report, u 
certificate good for 10,000 extrn 
votes will be issued. 

For the best Daily Report on Ex- 
tensions of subscriptions, a certifi- 
cate good for 10,000 extra votes will 
be issued. 

It will be possible for a contestant 
to win both those extra certificates in 
one day. 

A large blackboard will be found 
in front of Blythes Store, Burling- 
ton, and upon this board will appear 
the name of th e co n te st a nt who is 
entitled to being placed on the honor 
roll for the best reports turned in 
the day previous. Those winning a 
place on the honor roll will be an- 
nounced in the Recorder each week. 

Contestants should by nil means 
make an effort to get on the Honor 
Roll. This will show to your friends 
that you are working. 


Last Monday morning the second 
period began. Workers are now giv- 
ing their time and attention to EX- 
i* a most important announcement. 
Read it carefully. A subscription ex 
tended by a subscriber who has giv- 
en a subscription in the first period

'"My money goes on the blondes," 
says a race track enthusiast Culled, 
says the backers of the brunettes 

Yes sir, the farther they run the 
faster they go. 

Lee McNeely is having more fun 
than any man in Boone cou.ity right 
now. You see Lee is travelling in 
fast company, and the funny thin.-r 
about it all he has most of the good 
looking women looking right square 
at his heels. It won't do for Lee to 
face any of the women in this race. 
You can't win an Essex that way. 

Mrs, Thomas Henslcy did not like 
her picture that we reproduced' in 
the Recorder last week. Mrs. Hens- 
ley claims that she is whole lot better 
looking than that picture and so far 
we haven't heard her word disputed. 
In fact we thought so much at the 
time, anyhow the picture did not 
hurt her race for she landed a big 
bunch of subscriptions after the pa- 
per came out. 

Mrs. Alberta Kelly Stevens, the 
undisputed long distance racer is 
holding her record right up to the 
minute. You see she has been run- 
ning right from the beginning, and 
if some of them don't watch out she 
will get to take her rest while riding 
In the Essex coach after the race u 

Mii, George Kuttmyer who was at 
the top of the list last weuk L da 
serving of s larger territory than lbs 
••.tmmands in this race. Mrs. Kott 
uiyvr Is • raeer of real ability and 

will be entitled to much consider- 
ation for the efforts that she has put 
forth, regardless of where she may 
land in the final count. 

Miss Cecile Brown is certainly do- 
ing double duty in her race for the 
grand, capital prize. Besides work 
ing twenty-four hours a day for the 
Recorder she finds time enough to 
hold down her shift ^t the boards in 
the Walton exchange. Cecile Brow*, 
is one of the wonder girls in this 

Miss Francis V. Berkshire has 
changed horses and is now stepping 
right out to the front. By many 
Miss Frances is regarded as the pret- 
tiest girl in our race. The Cam- 
paign Manager does not dare tar 
this even though he believed it. How- 
ever we feel justified* in repeating 
what we hnve heard others sav. 

Mrs. Eva Kilgour's ability as a 
racer cannot be over estimated. She 
never gets in a hurry, never slows 

, down and never fails to bring in a 
nice big ttxi report. She possesses 
real race winning ability and softie 
one will have to make long steps to 

| pass this lady in the home stretc^ . 

Miss Georgia Burns is still in th . 

| ring with bells on. She is a stick- 
and never thinks of giving up 
Georgia would have fared much bet- 
te: had it not been for the fr.ct thai 
her mother was physically unable t •• 

, help her in the campaign. Anyhow, 

'■■ Georgia will be there at the las'. 

' count. 

Mrs. Lee Aylor will probably not 
' sco. e a prize but she will always be 
I known as one of the "also-rans." 
j She should have tried a little harder 
I and then she wouldn't have b> n 
outdistanced »o far. 

Elmo Jergens, a likely colt, will 
; not make a track record in this cam- 
paign. He was too young for the 
rest of the bunch, but the experience 
gained may help this young fellov 
sometime in the future. 

Mrs. Keene Souther is still in line 

I for a prize. She goes right on with 

I out looking back and we believe she 

; is going to scare one of the prizes 

regardless of the fact that she did 

not get very far from her home in 

Iter work for the Recorder. 

Miss Fannie Lois Cotton doesn't 
know which she had rather win, the 
Radio or the Essex. Well Fannie 
Lois one is gqing to be just as har.i 
to win as the other, but if you win 
the Essex and don't want it we will 
see that you got a Radio outfit and 
we'll take the conch, provided you 
don't change your mind. 

Mrs. Lucy Garrison has never fal» 
tered in her quest for subscriptions 
to the Recorder. Lucy believed sh? 
could sell the Recorder and now she 
knows it. But she wants the Essex 
Coach, and if the others are walling 
she will take it right now and stop 
the race. We don't believe that this 
arrangement can be made, right now. 

The Kentucky Belle, Mrs. Dell- 
Goodridge Collins, is a decided favor- 
ite in some quarters and it seems 
that she manages to find just where 
her candidacy is the strongest for 
she comes to the front with another 
big bunch of subscriptions for the 
close of the high vote period. 

Mrs. Alma Glacken, whom we pre- 
sented to our readers last week as 
the blushing bride, has gotten over 
her timidity and is still going a rapid 
gait right down the line for the 
home stretch. Alma is a racer of 
the stick-to- it kind. 

Albert Willis the rider of thai 
beautiful horse, Trieby, is gainfh* 
speed rapidly. Albert encountered 
one of the Recorder's oldest subscrib- 
ers Inst week in his rounds for sub- 
scription. "Hey there" Albert beck 
onod to n prospect. "1 am in the Re 
corder race for the Essex Coach and 
want your subscription. "Alri»rht" 
was the prompt reply, Albert furl h< 
Inquired art you u subscriber to ti> 
Recorder?" "Yes sir" he said. "Mow 
long have jmi bet -n taking it?" Al- 
bert come back." Ever nine- 
hnve been talking to ine" rtplii ■ tl I 
prospect Albert handed him a

During the past two weeks l'-l 
Pure bred Jerseys have been s-.l.l 
to go out of Boor.e County. Two 
go to JHuingvillc, Ohio, tea to La- 
Grnnge, six to^TThnble County fot 
Boys and Girls Club work and one 
to Boyle County. These cattle 
ranged from a ten week old calf to 
a five yeai old cow. One yearlir c 
bull went in the lot. 

C. F. Kinsey of Hopeful made the 
largest sale of twelve head. L. T. 
Clore and son sold two, J. .Sco ! anil 
Sons sold two, and Dr. Ryle of Wal- 
ton, three. 

This lot of pure bred cattle 
brought $2,006, which shows that 
that there is t- 1 ill a demand for good 
.■itutf and that it is more profitab'" 
than grades or scrubs. It docs not 
cost any more to raise a purvbred 
than it does a scrub.

By A. M. Yesley. 

About the Year 1725 there re- 
sided near Montreal, Canada, a 
french family by the name of Lon- 
gueil. This family consisted of a 
father, mother, and six boys. The 
father had held important positions 
in the army in France before emi- 
grating to Canada and consequently j 
during the wars between France and 
England he was entrusted to help I 
carry on the military operations ! 
against the English in the Ohio Val- ! 
ley and by. taking an active part, 
father and sons became well ac- | 
quainted with the territory between | 
the great lakes and the Ohio River. 
"We should know during the period 
1689 to 17G3 France claimed the 
Ohio and Mississippi Valley as far 
south as Louisiana." During the 
year 1739 the Chickasaw Indians 
were cntfsing the French consider- 
able trouble by attacking their set- 
tlements which were located in the 
wes era part of Tennessee. The 
French Govenor of Canada sent M. 
Longueil the third son of the above 
family to stop the raids on the 
French settlements in that region. 
on his way down the Ohio River ho 
came to the little stream now known 
as Big Boone Creek ascending this 
stream he discovered Big Bone Lick 
1739. Therefore, being the first 
white visitor to set his foot on Boone 
County soil. After completing hi-s 
journey and being defeated by- !«-• 
Chickasaw Indians he returned to 
Canada and in his report fo the Gov 
ernor he wen'ioned what he saw at 
Big Bone Lick. And from l?39 to 
1763 it became a stopping place fo- 
the French explorer. 
"To be continued in the next issue.'' 


Two Boone county names appear 
on the honor roll of the state cow 
testing association for the month oi"> 
December. There were 7 1 jersey 
cows on tea: that month and three 
were owned by local breeders. 

Volunteer's Vida, a six year old 
cow, owned by Hubert Ryle and Son 
of Grant, stood second among thi • 
number with 88.2 pounds of milk an! 
4.88 pounds of fat in two days. 
Holly Dewdrop, a cow owned by 
Harry Hartke, stood high in :he list 
with 4.89 pounds. Pogis Lecni G^ld, 
owned by O. C. Hafer, of Hebron, 
stood third with 71.8 pounds of milk 
and 4.602 pounds of fat. Exiles Vi- 
ola, owned by Hubert Ryle and Son 
stood eleventh with 57. pounds of 
milk and 3.575 of fat. 

These are some real good records 
that our breeders can .veil be proud

The new movie machine which was 
demonstrated at the six community 
meetings held at Verona, Hebron, 
Union. Florence, Grant and Peters- 
burg created quite an interes ing 
feature of the progrnr" *^ r*"»Tag2 
of over 125 people turned out to the 
meetings which assures quite a bit 
of interest. One reel of the movies 
shown dealt with the Value of Lime- 
stone to the Soil, another showed 
Niagara Falls from every angle and 
gave a good story if its history ami 
usefulness and was followed by two 
reels of good comedy. 

These movies should be of great 
educational value to the boys and 
girls of the communities in which 
they were shown, as well as the 

Mrs. B. E. Ayor's White Leghorn 
pullets which she entered in the 
Murphysboro contest are holding 
their own although one of the best 
pullets died. 

The five pullets have laid 171 cgg<? 
during the fir^t two months or aa 
average 17.5 eggs per hen which is 
very good. They now stand in sec 
ond place in the contest.

some things about, he amounts an I 
kinds of fertilizers, methods of grow

These things will be of importance 
to nil who are thinking of growing 
any amount of tomatoes. Mr. Wr.uck 
has been working ns a field nfftn i'>

many things about tomato growing.

Alfalfa is a very valuable crop. 
Why not sow more this spritf): and 
reduce feed costs? 

The tobacco grower raises n few 

acres of tobacco and but little *H»se. 
When this crop of lobacco is market- 
ed then come the necessaries for 
man and beast, and they must be 
bought with the moi vy this little 
crop brings in. Now. in nil sin-

big piece of foolishness. Wot k

Extension Subscriptions Now Have 
Greatest Vote Building Power. 

Contestants please bear in mind that the Sec- 
ond Period spells success or failure for all con- 
testants in the Recorder Circulation Cam- 
paign. The importance of EXTENSION 
SUBSCRIPTIONS as announced on first 
page of this week's paper will not be overlook- 
ed by a real contender for the Essex Coach. 
The value of these EXTENSIONS cannot be 
stated too plainly and every candidate is strong- 
ly urged to write every EXTENSION that 
they can during the remaining few days of 

tais exciting campaign. Just one EXTENSION 
SUBSCRIPTION may register the difference 
between the Essex Coach and one of the 
smaller prizes. Explain this Extension fea- 
ture to your friends who have given a sub- 
scription before — explain the tremendous vot- 
ing power of EXTENSIONS-get them to ex- 
tend another year at least— better still insist on 
the limit and in this manner save the sub- 
suriber 50c per year on their subscriptions 
written during this campaign. Work EX- 

TENSIONS strongly-it will pay you handsome 
dividends. Second Vote period ends Saturday 
night, Feby. 7th. During the last period the 
vote schedule will go down. No extension, no 
bunus, no special offers just the vote schedule 
as listed on the back of your receipt books that's 
all. This is final. Score all the points you can 
during the Extension Period. Contest closes* 
two weeks from next Saturday night. The 
time is growing short. Now is the time to get 
in the lead. Be patient, work hard and suc- 
cess is bound to crown your efforts.

The Isle of Pines, located about 
80 miles south of Cuba, is about the 
sizo of Rhode Island. It has a popu 
lation of 4,250 people of whom 700 
arc Americans. For twenty-one years 
Congress has struggled with the prob- 
lem of whether the island belongs to 
Cuba or to the United Sta es, and 
now the question is again before the 

American citizens own 00 per cent 
of the and, purchased on the under 
standing that the Pines would be 
annexed to the United States as n 
sister colony to Porto Rico, under the 
written agreement made by Spain a 
the close of the Spanish war. 

In 1898, John Hay, as secretary 
of State, opposed the annexation of 
the Island, because he has repeatedly 
asserted ihat the war with Spain was 
in no sense a war of conquert, re 
gardless of the written record and 
deed from Spain. When Cuba war 
set free he relinquished all claim tn 
the Isle of Pines, asserting that ; t 
belonged to Cuba. The Sena e of 
the United States ratified only r nr t 
of this treaty and ever since thai 
time the matter has been unsettle!. 
President Roosevelt authorized Elihu 
Root, then Secretary of War, to un 
tangle the diplomatic knot, and h* 
held 'hat the United States *•"* un 
substantial claim to the Island. 
Manwhile Cuba believes it will come 
to them sometime nnd are at pr» ( ni 
governing the Isand.

More ned better poultry and larger

The Madisonvllle Ad. Club Is co-op-

are given away as premiums on trade

among farmers, ©specially In sheep 
raising and dairyfiiR. 

A recent corn, fruit and poultry I 
show drew a largo attendance at Cor- '

a guest of a local luncheon club, sug-

Interested. The matter was then pre- 
sented to the Chamber of Commerce. 
At the request of the county agent, J 
O. Barkman, of the dairy division of 
the College of Agriculture, was called 
to the county. It also was decided to 
send a committee into Tennessee to in- 
vestigate creamery operations. When 
this committee returned and reported 
It was evident that the College of Agri- 
culture has saved the public-spirited 
citizens of the community about $10- 
000 by preventing them from investing 
In a proposition which could not suc-

Records gathered from demonstra-

out the state co-operating with the Col- 
lege of Agriculture show conslusively 
that it pays to select a breeding pen to 
produce hatching eggs, according to 
James E. Humphrey, extension poultry- 
Iman for the college. 

One point emphasized by demonstra- 
tion nock reoords is that it is better to 
use hens than pullets for breeding pur- 
poses. Mr. Humphrey said. Early 
hatched pullets usually come into pro- 
duction in November, If grown out

Mr. Humphrey advises the selection 
of hens that molted in October or No- 
vember, as they have had an oppor- 
tunity to rest at the right time to be 
most beneficial to them as breeders 
He suggests other rules as follows: 

Reject as breeders all birds with 
standard disqualifications, such as 
stubs (little feathers) on their shanks 
or toes; or single-comb varieties with 
side sprigs, also single-comb birds In 
the rose-comb varieties, as Is often 
found among Wyandotte*. All birds 
"off" iu color should be rejected. 

After culling for breed characteris-

points to consider. These are shown

Twenty-nine years ago the farmer

existence of almost complete isola-

farms, some of them millea apart. 
They had comparatively little com- 
munication with their neighbors or 
the outsde world, except that derived 
from weekly trips to the adjacent 
village. More often hau not the far- 
mer lost a full day's work and his

consisted largely of communications

According to statistics compiilcd 
by the Chamber of Commerce of the 
United States the total volume of re- 
tail business last year was close to 
$22,000,000,000 or about $60,000,- 
000 per day. This represents a per 
capita expenditure of $207.62 for 
food, clothing, furniture, fuel and 
lighh and miscellaneous commodities 
of which $97.58 was for food. In 
other words it costs an average fam- 
ily of four $830.48 not including 
rent, doctor's and dentists and bar- 
ber bills, medicines, insurance, amuse 
monts, church donations, traveling 
expenses and undertakers bills. In 
arriving st ihis sverage, however, 
Hi-itisticicns always include the 10,- 
000,000 of population who arc in- 
mates of prisons, poor houses, insane 
asylums, homes, and on the books of 
charitable institution* as paupers. 
When these o her items are taken in- 
to account it will be found that tho 
lowest survey mads by four different 
organizations that ths cost of living 
for a family of four was about $1,900 
por year, is not far from correct.

To be sold at thc'Court House Door in Burlington, Ky., 

Monday, February 2d, 1925 

at 1 o'clock P. M-| 

These farms are owned by Frank V. Craig and are located in 

The East Bend Bottoms of Boone County, Ky. 

• *f a* 

The It/T 4 rtcftrtract is all bottom lanu* and Vv./ 'pro uctive, located on pikc&r.S the Ohio 
River. Good brick house, good barn and other outbuildings. This is one of the best 
Ohio River Bottom farms in Boone County. A Government light is located on thi« 
farm which pays the owner ot this farm $132 00 per year. 

The 122 acre farm is located near the 104 1-4 acre tract and could be handled nicely to- 
gether. This 122 acres is good productive land as well as affording splendid pasture 
with some timber. Two houses and two bams, crib and other outbuildings. There 
is a fraction over 97 acres in one tract of the hill farm and 24 3-4 acres in one tract. 

It is propsed to'sell each of these two tracts of the hill farm separately then as a whole, 
to be sold the way the 122 acres brings the most money, or a sumcieru number ot acres 
to be sold to raise the amount of money necessary to be raised. 

Purchaser must be prepared to give bond for the purchase price payable in six and 
twelve months. Easier terms can be arranged by seeing the Peoples Deposit Bank at 
Burlington, Ky., in advance of the sale. 

Prospective purchaser* are invited to look at these farms before day of sale by calling en

the original Underwood bill provided 
for private-leasing of Muscle Shoals 
was adopted by the Scnaie by a vote 
of 50 to 80 and was immediately re- 
ferred hack to the House. All 
amendments were rejected. Oppos- 
ing the Underwood bill on the final 
vote were 13 Republicans from 
western s atos; 16 Democrats mostly 
from southern snd western states, 
and one Farmer- Labor. Thirty-four 
Republicans, 14 of them from west- 
ern states, and 10 Democrats, three 
nf (hem from western states, voted 
for the bill. 

After three or four ytars of 
preparation tha turn-overs and flip- 
flaps and the several votes on tho 
Muscle question does not in- 
dicate that dagree of business asgac-

to be too much lobby, snd not mrt-

Gov. Smith, of New York in his 
inaugural address pledged ^himself 
to pursue a non-partisan policy. Po- 
litical opponents will say that as the 
noted governor is surrounded by 
state officials of the opposite party, 
be would naturally look favorably On 
non-partisanship. However, in call in : 
for the non-partisan spirit he striken 
a popular note. The people are weary 
of needless strife in politics and 
playing for partisan advantage. 

We need political parties whic.i

The publisher* of the Boone C*>. 
Recorder have been contemplating 
for tome time the raiting of . thr> 
subscription rates to thia paper. Wc 
did not deem it practical to make 
the new rale* effective prior or dur- 
ing our present subscription cam- 
paign. We desire now to make pub- 
lic announcement that on the 15*Ii 
day of February, 192S, the day fol- 
lowing the close of our campaign 
that tbe regular subscription price 
of the RECORDER will be $2.00 
per year. This raise is absolutely 
necessary on account of the increased 
price of news print and other csoU 
incidental to tbe production of tbe 
paper. The RECORDER is one 
among the last of the old establish- 
ed papers in Kentucky to raise its 
subscription rate. Tbis raise will 
not be effective during the present 
campaign, and according to the rules 
of tbe campaias you will be permit- 
ted to take advantage of the old rate 
as far in advance as 1931, but the 
new rate will positively take effect 
upon expiration of the time for 
which you subscribe during the cam- 
paign. It will be our uppermost 
desire to make the paper well worth 
the price of your subscription.

The Parent-Teachers Acsociatii n 
held its regular meeting last Friday- 
night at the school house. The sub- 
ject for the evenings discussion was

als." O. C. Hafer and family played 
two selections. The officers of tl< 
association served lunch after the 

! meeting.

i the first time Friday night.

County Clerk, M. E. Rogers, has 
I received conflicting instructions in 
> regard to collecting a twenty per 
' cent penalty on all automobile li- 
censes issued after January 1 !>, 1025 
The S ate Revenue agent says that 
I the Clerk must collect this penalty of 
[ twenty per cent. A suit to test this 
! que8 ion has been brought and js 
| be>ng n??>£eatad by the Automobile 
j Clubs contending that the penalty 
j should not be paid, the Circuit Judprc 
i who heard the case decided that the 
j penalty must be collected and that 
I question is now before the Courts of 
I Appeals and it is hoped that a deci- 
J sion will be rendered in a short time 
i and until that Court decides the 
I question the County Clerk must col- 
I lect the penalty. 

,- This condition not only causes the 
I County Clerk quite a lot of trouble 
j as well as the automobile owners who 
has not secured his 1925 licenses.

Mrs. Lucy Garrison, while her 
reports were below normal,, comes 
to the limelight as the special driver 
of the E ^x Coach this week. Mrs. 
Garrison declares that she ran into 
a snow bank early in the week and 
that it took ton men to dig her our.

Mrs. Lucy is making a splendid

to sit on the seat of honor.

After that date they will seal their

method prevents any one from know

for honors in the campaign. 

Cecile Brown, of Waltontown, 
still feels that she is entitled to first 
place in our race. Cecile has a 
friendly way in campaigning and 
she actually believes in herself and 
is still anxious to do all she can to 
win. That's the spirit, Cecile.

Miss Francis has her plans laid for

time she has thus far no ified us in

Florence, is still a strong favorite. 
This Kentucky Belle has shown

and while the cold weather detterei 
her some in her progress yet she did 
not weaken as much as some of the

Mrs. Keene Souther has never let

That is certainly a commendable

(By the Club Manager) 

A sloppy track has prevented 
many a fine horse from nosing into 
the lead, but some horses run as 
well under those conditions as on a 
dry track. Have we any "Mudders?" 

Don't be afraid of getting too 
many votes — that never did happen. 
The more votes you get the more

LISTEN — Do not underestimate 
the other fellow's vote getting pow- 
er. That some times beats a real 

"boss." , 

Yes, some of the boys and girls 
may have been jockeyed out of their 
position by the cold snap.

Lee McNeely can not now figure

In every farm buggy shed was at 
least one "cutter," sometimes gaily 
painted, sometimes black, but always 
a thing of swanlike curves and spid- 
ery grace. In the wagon shed th • i 
"bob-sled" always stood, upended 
since the previous spring. In th 
towns everybody who possessed car-

bells. A pretty sight it was, a heart- 
ening thing to hear the bells. What 
fun o "jump the bobs" and ride far 
into the country on the sled of some 
obliging farmer, until the return ride j 
could be negotiated on some horn? 
ward bound "bob." When the snow i 
got firmly packed on the roads, '. 
"jumping bobs" gave way to "catch | 
on" rides on one's own sled, with ; 
certain ways of attaching your rope 
so that you could let go when the i 
spirit moved. Or, for those too old fo -• 
such juvenile fun, snuggling down in 
the deep cut er seat, or piling into 
big sleighs with many others, well 
covered with buffalo robes, makes 
motoring seem tame indeed. 

Instead of roads, alive with da*hin«; 
horse-drawn turnouts, all that is to 
be seen is an endless line of autorro- 
biles churning thru the drifts of 
mow, Instead of the cheery jingle of 
the sleigh bells, all you hear is the 
frosty honking of the horns and the 
slap of the anti-skid chains. Winter 
in the North, without sleighing and 
n «i.n<rtrt sleigh bells can be nothing 
bui plain cold weather and little to 
recommend it.

A plea for better utilization of the 
land, especially increased crop yield? 
as a means of improving agricultural 
conditions in Kentucky, is made by 
Prof. Geo. Roberts, head of tho 
agronomy department of the College 
of agriculture and Experiment Sta- 
tion in a new bulletin entitled "Bet- 
ter Land Utilization in -Kentucky." 

Kentucky farms average less than 
80 acres in size, only 52 acres of 
which are classified as improved. The 
harvested crops of the state ambunt 
to about 24 acres per farm, as an 
average. For the period 1916-22 
corn in the state averaged 26 bushed 
to the acre, wheat 11 bushels, oats 
21 bushels, hay 1.2 tons* and tobac- 
co 861 pounds, Small aceagres at 
low yields result in an average an- 
rual Kentucky farm crop production 
worth less than $1,000. 

The solution of the problem is to 
increase acre yields, says Professor 
Roberts. There must be a betuler 
utilization of the land. "There can 
be no prosperity for farmers in 
Kentucky as a whole until the soil 
is made more productive he declare 1 ; 

While it is true that farmers are 
suffering severely from low price, 
for their products, it is not possible 
for them to be prosperous on tho 
present crop yields at any pric-c.- 
thot they are likely ever to obtai i 
in normal times. 

"All programs for improvement of 
agriculture should be based upon the 
idea of soil improvement. All the 
efforts to improve farm homes, the 
schools and roads in agricultural re- 
gions will be repaid with meager re- 
sults unless there is a productive 
soil to support the enterprises." 

Prof. Roberts says that the Inlt 
ial remedy lies in more legumes. He 
declares that there is no hope that 
the soils of the state can be mater- 
ially improved until the legume acre- 
age is increased.

Beware Of Coughs 
That Hangs On 

Pneumonia and serious lung trouble 
Usually start with a cough. So If you 
have a cold or cough — stop It at once 
with a few doses of that fine old medi- 
cine, Kemp's Balsam. This famous 
Balsam soothes the nerves of the 
throat, stops the tickling cough and 
nature does the rest. No form of cough 
syrup so good for children's coughs. 
SO cents at all stores. 

For that Cough / 


The vice-president of a large pub 
lie utility says that taxation is a 
live issue. It seems a live issue for 
the big corporations, but it is no 
less so for the smallest taxpayer. 

One-seventh of the income of tho 
American people now goes to taxes. 
The people are paying three times 
as much per capita in taxes as they 
did in 1912 — an increase of 30a) 
per ccj 1 *' : ~ *— ««w«v w ■*•'. 

These are facts that should be re 
remembered wiren the legislature 
conevnes. Most legislation increase? 
taxes. Few laws are enacted whjch 
do not impose added expense upon 
the taxpayer. Few laws carrying tax 
levies are ever repealed. Thus the 
tax burden mounts. 

There seems to be little prospect 
of lowering taxes any appreciable 
•mount except through making tax 
able te $h32,000,000,000 invested 
in securities, the income from which 
is exempt from federal taxes. 

But this is the least of the evil. 
It has been determined that five 
sixths of the tax-free securities a:? 
issued by cities, counties and other 
local governments. Thus capital 
that should be invested in taxable 
property does not bear its share of 
the expense of government. 

The one big problem of all gov- 
ernment, whether federal, state, 
county or municipal, is to reduce ex- 
penditures and increase receipts. 

Economy in governmont, which 
means cutting down expenses, can 
be accomplished only by curtailing 
lepisfa'ion and checking the in- 
crease of taxexelmpt securities, 
which are responsible for the mount 
ing of public debt. 

The federal government can nol 
tax the incomes derived from sta'e, 
municipal and other Jecal secur- 
ities, without amending the consti- 
tution. It would require a long timo 
to add such a provision to the con- 
stitution, but Buch action would 
make local securities less inviting, 
even if states did not make them 

Tells How to End 
Night Coughing 

To quickly stop hacking, irritat-

ple treatment may be had that 
often enables you to sleep tho whole

at once. 

The treatment 13 based on a re- 
markable prescription known as 
Dr. King's New Discovery for 
Coughs. You simply take a tea-

ly loosens and removes tqe phlegm

cause of the coughing. So no mat- 
ter whether your cough is dry and 
tight, or loose with much mucus, 
the coughing soon stops, you can 
usually sleep your accustomed time 
without a break, and the whole 
cough condition goes in a very short

A colt survey in several Indiana 
counties has revealed that there are 
only ithout 16 per cent as many 
coll? under two years old on farms 
an will ordinarily he required for re- 
placements. If the percentage con- 
tinues to run that low for soni" 
years it is easy to figure out a ser- 
ious shortaRC in horse power. But it 
won't continue that low in Indiana 
or p.ny other state. Breeding in 
creased last spring, and there will 
be more colts this spring. And prob- 
ably there will be more next sprint! 
thtn this spring. Yet similar figures 
fj">m different parts of the country, 
based on counts made during the 
rr.f-l few years, would irdicnte that 
we have a period in which there 
won't be enough horses to go around. 
The horse turnover is the slowest 
in livestock production. In other 
words, a horse shortage is slow in 
coming because it takes horses n 
long time to wear ou' ; on the other 
hand, when it does come its stay li 
prolonged, becauiie it takes a good 
while to produce workers. — Chicago

We just heard of a fellow who

» "Aided by a well-organized propa- 
ganda conducted by more than 100 
French newspapers and as manv 
more of other na ional^, France is 
making a desperate ell'ort to avoid 
payment of the money loaned during 
the war, and from present indiea 
tions the total will be materially re- 
duced in any even.. Meanwhile the 
American people are taxed to p:v 
the interest on the bonds. Prance 
can pay just as easily as Gcrmr.ny or 
England can pay, and should be com-

the money for greater war prenara 


More commercial feeds were used 
in Kentucky in 1924 than in 1923, 
according to J. D. Turner, head of 
the department of feed control of 
the Experiment Station. With thi 
exemption of horse feed, there was 
a gradual increase in the use of 
nearly nil classes of commercial 
feeds. The consumption of horse 
feed fell from 35,450 tons in 192.1 
to 26.U45 tons in 1924. The use of 
cottonseed meal increased from 7,- 
223 tons in 1923 to 13,725 tons ln.»t 
year. This does not include cotton 
Hoed meal consumed in the form of 
mixed feeds

Special Correspondent of the RE- 

The Controversy which has engros- 
sed American statesmen since tho 
early days of the Republic is aflame 
again. It is: Shall the state Depart- 
ment or the Senate ahndle our for- 
eign relations. The latest outccrop- 
ping of the problem, as we indicated 
last week, results from the signintr in 
Paris of an "agreement" providing 
for the disposition among the allies 
of the reparations payments maoe by 
Germany. The representatives of the 
United States at the Paris conference 
were there in an unofficial capacit ", 
but the agreement which they con- 
cluded is an official one binding tt e 
United States, according to somt- 
members of tho Senate, to go alor, 
with the European powers k> enforc- 
ing the post-war demands on Ger- 
many. Then, too, Secretary Hughes 
holds thatt this agreement is NOT 
a treaty and, therefore, does nj. 
have to be submitted to the Sena 
for approval. 

Trouble Develops, however, front 
the demands of the old anti-leagnc 
group in the Senate, some times 
faiown as irreconcillables , for the 
text of the agreement and the pri •- 
ilege to accept it or turn it dowr.. 
Among hese objectors to the methods 
of the State Department is no less r 
figure than the Chairman of the 
Foreign Relations Committee, Borah, 
of Idaho. 

Scenting Possible misunderstandings 
between the White House and the 
Foreign Relations Committee of the j 
Senate, President Coolidge has taker. I 
steps to bring the members around f o ! 
the views of the Administration ■thru

fasts and similar functions. The firs* , 
of these affairs was attended by Mr.

The best way to fertilize a garden 
is to use manure, but manure is 
not always enough. 

Many gardeners wonder why they 
cannot grow radishes and turnips of 
any size. Even tho the tops are large 
— too large, in fact. The reason is 
that there is not enough of the plant 
food the roots require in manure 
Manure is made up of nitrogen, 
phosphorus and potash, and so are 
garden crops B.ut all garden crops 
are not alike in the propor.ions in 
which they need these three kind-; 
of plant food. 

Generally speaking, leaf crops, 
.such as greens, onions, cabbage and 
corn, which is not a leaf crop, need 
nitrogen more than anything else; 
for them manure by itself, is ideal 
The fruit and seed crops, such as 
beans, tomatoes and melons, need 
more nitrogen, but they need a 
grea*: deal of phosphorus besides. 
Beans and tomatoes that bloom pro- 
fusely, but whose blossoms drop off 
without setting fruit, indicate that 
tho fertilizer is one-sided; acid 
phosphate have been added to the 
manure, or the manure was used 
too fresh. 

The root crops need potash to 
make the best crops, but generally 
the gardens of Kentucky have 
enough of this plant food. If pota- 
toes and the root crops make too 
much top and no bot om, it is a 
sign that there is too much nitrogen 
there; the remedy is to use less ma- 

Making fertilizer recommenda- 
tions to fit all cases is somewhat 
risky, but these general rules will 
fit fairly well: <■ 

1. For leaf crops and corn, ma- 
nure used fairly fresh will do. Ex- 
cept for corn, these crops are bene- 
fitted by topdressings of nitrate of 
soda, 1 pound to 100 feet of row, 
or 100 square feet of garden broad-

j manure, somewhat rolled, one ton 

to every 50 feet square of garden, 

of acid 

50,000,000 MORE P0UNI S

I g&rden manured the year previous

V THE Great Red Brick House in Far- 

ragut Square where Senator Frank 
Brandagce of Connecticut lived for 
many years before he ended his life 
with gas is being completely over- 
hauled by the executors of the es- 
tate preliminary to selling it. Brana- 
gee's debts at the time uf his death 
aggregated several hundred thousand 
dollars with only $18, 000 worth of 
property with which to liquidate 
them. A considerable sum, was raised 
in an auction of his books, paintings 
and other works of arts which he 
had collected during his lifetime.

tenants, the data disclosed. 

Dairying, poultry and hog raising 
are some of the branches of agricul 
ture in which the women farmers of 
the state specialize, the analysis re- 
vealed. The land under cultivation 
by the feminine agriculturalists is 
close to 871,000 acres, of which 
525,000 acres are improved. Tht> 
value of these farms is 47 million 
dollars. The figures further reveal- 
ed that women cul'.ivate 4.2 per 
cent of all farms in the state, and 
4.0 per cent of the total acreage, 
the value being 3.6 per cent of the 
whole. The average value of the

pounds of the 1924 crop and the P 
Lorillard Tobacco Co., took 3,500, 
000 pounds of the 1924 crop. The 
Penn Tobacco Company bought 400. 
000 pounds of the 1924 tobacco. De

announced. The amount of monev 
involved in the sales was said to be 
about $15,000,000. 


There is something really pathet- 
ic in the way a mother butterfly 
builds a nest for her children. In 
the first place the little home where 
the eggs are deposited represents a 
great deal of sacrifice, for it is lin- 
ed with several layers of down 
plucked from the mother's own soft 
body. The eggs having been laid 
carefully upon this luxurious, pret- 
ty coverlet made of the same ma- 

The building of this downy nest 
is the latest earthly labor of the 
mother butterfly, for by the time 
it is complete her own delicate 
body is denuuded of its natural cov- 
ering and there is nothing left for 
her to do but die, a sacrifice which 
she promptly and heroically makes 
in the interest of the coming but- 
terfly generation.

Rev. H. C. Runyan, pastor of the 
Latonia Christian church, celebrated 
the twenty- hird anniversary of his 
connection with that church last 
Sunday, Feb., 1st. When Rev. Run- 
yan preached his first sermon there 
twenty three years ago, it was to 
an audience of 22, and last Sunday, 
(twenty-three years later) he spoke 
to approximately 1200. 

Rev. Runyan, whose health caused 
him to abandon an extensive Euro- 
pean tour last summer, is now form- 
ing a touring party, which will visit 
such interesting points as London, 
Paris, the battle fields, Rome, Ven-

Higher Pay for the members of 

the President's cabinet is the object 

of a bill which Congressman Hamil- j 

ton Fish of New York has introduced j 

in the House. Fish pointed out that ! 

-the recent retirement of Secretary j 

Hughes was necessitated Jby the fact , 

that he had to go back to the -law t j i 

make up for his losses incurred in his 

private fortune while serving the i 

government. Cabinet officers now get I . 

$12,000 a year. Fish suggested that i that wom * Iinatural 'y '**<* to. The 

1 same appears to hold true for poul- 
try raising. For pin money for the 
thousand and one items needed in 
the home, the sale of eggs and 
poultry and cream has ever been 
known a^ a sure means. Many a 
woman in need of more money ha* 
almost instinctively turned to milk- 
ing COWS and keeping hens. 

ed by women was found to be in 
excess of $4,100. 

Commenting on the large percent- 
age of women who go in for dairy- 
ing and poultry raising, the Insti- 
tute sees a peculiar adaptation of 
these occupations to the feminine 
nature. From early times, it says, 
the tUtemga farm-woman ims~ hau 
to care for the milk and act as 
dairymaid too. And milking cows 
and selling butterfat with its re- 
quirements of close attention to 
details seems to«be a type of work" 

this be raised to $17,500. The proven 
intensive campaign for Governmen- 
tal economy is expected to prevent 
any salary increases, however. 

The Spectacle of a member of the 

Senate being tried in a criminal 
court in Washington while Congrer^ 
is in session is anticipa ed ns a re- 
sult of tentative plans of the Depart 
ment of Justice to seek an indict- 
ment here against Sensitor Bur on 
K. Wheeler of Montana, who ran f ^r 
Vice-President last year un the In- 
dependent ticket. Wheeler is already 
under indictment in Montana for ac- 
cepting money to appear before Gov 
ornment department for one of hi-5 
cons ituents. As the activities for 
which Wheeler is alleged to have 
- been paid took place in the Capital, 
the Attorney General sees no reason 
why the trial cannot be held heTe.

Lexington, Ky. — E. M. Prewitt, 

extension field agent in dairying 
for the College of Agriculture, re- 
ports that the recent organization 
of two associations in Muhlenburg 
and Spencer and Shelby counties 
makes a total of 18 co-operative 
bull associations in Kentucky. Mem- 
bers of these 18 associations own 58 
purebred bulls, and 2,32a cows, sr2 
per cent of which were formerly 
bred to low-grade bulls. 

The association recently formed 
in Muhlenburg county has 78 mem- 
bers, who own 140 cows, 98 per 
cent of which were formerly bred 
to scrub bulls. 


They are the world's largest Exclu- 
sive manufacturers of one and one- 
half quart Fira Extinguishers. They 
'are incorporated under the laws of 
Ohio for $760,000. 

They have been in the (Ire ex. 
tinguisher business since 1910. They 
have manufactured fir* extinguish- 
ers since 1916. 

They are located in Dayton, O. 

Their local representative is Da- 
vid S. Cooper, Burlington, Ky. 

Mr. Herbert Swope, of the New 
York World, addressing the Ameri- 
can Society of Newspaper Editors 
defined the scope of journalism as 
"Life Reflected in Ink," and sail 
that people "must parlake of the 
ugliness as well as the beauty." It 
is true, nevertheless, that many 
managing editors permit and even 
encourage the printing— of — sordid 
i sensational details of crime, to • be 
j circulated in the homes of their 
I friends and neighbors, that, if ap- 
pearing in a book on the family 
j reading table, or the shelves of n 
| school library, wouuld call from 
these same editors a protest that 
would burn the binding and brand 
the authors as not fit for respecta- 
ble association. Of course, times 
, have changed since the days of Bcr 
Franklin and Horace Greely — even 
the old Police Gazette has become 
i passed — but that and results sp< , I 
! for themselves. 

The consensus of opinion anion,, 1 
I judges and people who come in 
j touch with criminals is that the 
newspapers are largely responsible 
for the alarming increase of crime 
and general demoralization or 
you'.h, both boys and girls. 

As a rule the press strives to 
serve their public with what it wants 
but a line should be drawn some- 
mhere. Newspapers are unquestion- 
ably educational to a large degree, 
and it cannot be claimed that the 
spreading out of all these wretched 
stories of crime is the sort of edu- 
cation needed. It should net be up 
to the public to show newspapers 
what they want — it has been • re- 
peatedly demonstrated in more ways 
than one during the pas tfew years 
that newspapers have the power to 
show the people what they want 

If the advertisers and Chambers 
of Commerce should take action on 
the subject it would not be long 
before a marked improvement 
would be noticed in this particular. 

Nothin* new 'bout this eclipse of 
the sun they talk about, as the same 
thing is done very often by the 

Victor Oberting a well known cit- 
izen of Lawrenceburg, Ind., died at 
the Baptist Hospital, Louisville, on 
Jan. 28th, 1925, aged 67 years. H13 
many friends on this side of the 
Ohio will be grieved to hear of his 

Mr. Oberting, son of John and 
Theresa Oberting of Alsace-Lorraine 
was born February 2, 1858 at Law- 
renceburg. He was married to Anna 
Garnier, to which union four chi'- 
dren wee born; two sons, Emanuel 
and Marion of Lawrenceburg and 
one daughter Mrs. Anna Geise) and 
one child who died in infancy. 

Mr. Oberting served as repres- 
entative in the Legislature in the 
64th General Assembly, 1905, where 
he made many acquaintances and 
retainde them as friends. He suc- 
ceeded the late John B. Gamier in 
the Gamier brewing business, later 
turning the business into the Gar- 
nier Ice Plant, with plants bo{h here 
and at Lawrenceburg. 


Years ago, when politics held less 
conscience for public men of the 
opposition, and Charles E. Hughes 
was Governor of New York, he wa3 
cartooned as "the little man in the 
big office." If the originator of the 
then clever epigrammatical state- 
ment still lives, even he might some- 
what modify or render less stinging 
the pointed phrase. For Mr. Hughes, 
as Secretary of State, has shown 
marked ability as an international 

He is to retire to private life and 
work. The emoluments of high of- 
fices such as his, while comforting, 
are not fabulous. Not as a sugges- 
tion, but as a bold comparison (and 
assuming that his talents ran in 
that direction), Mr. Hughes could 
make more money in vaudeville or 
in motion pictures, than in the high 
office that he holds. But if the people 
felt that they directly paid the sal- 
aries of the vaudeville and motion 
picture artists as they do in paying 
Cabinet or other government em- 
ploye^ through direct taxation or 
government revenue, no doubt the 
salaries of the stars would com.' 
down with a crash. 

One of the problems of govern- 
ment always has been and always 
will be the keeping of salaries of 
public officers within the happy 
medium of being large enough to 
compensate for ability and efficiency 
and at the same time small enough 
to prevent attraction of the unscrup

one of the all absorbing questions 
that is now before the people of 
Boone county. Every section of the 

Kellys, the Southers and the Hoods; 
the Willis and the Dills. Yes sir, the

against each other in a friendly tus- 
sell for first honors in its great 

county is represented in this race by j subscription building campaign. To 

a worthy and dependable worker. AH 
eyes arc focused on the outcome. 
Indeed it is interesting and excit- 
ing. The race comes to a close at 8 
p. m., next Saturday night at the 
Peoples Deposit Bank in Burlington. 
The sealed box was placed in th> 
bank lust Monday morning where it 
will remain until it is opened by the 
Judges. Candidates will seal thei • 
collections along with their reports 
and deposit same in box at the bank. 
No one connected with the cam- 
paign department or the Recorder 
office will have access to the bo.v. 
This sealed box holds the secret as 
to who will be the winners of the 
various prizes that the Recorder .'•> 
giving away in this campaign. 

A Keen Kutter hatchet, donated 
for the purpose by W. L. Kirkpa*- 
rick, is the key to the sealed box. 
As tHe clock strikes the hour of 
eight one of the judges will take 
the hatchet and smash the box and 
the count will then commence. With- 
in less than one hour the judge, will 
have the audit made and the win- 
ners declared. There will be no long 

The Recorder race has developed 
considerable rivalry between the 
towns of the county. As it stands to- 
day wiseacres say that certain towns 
have their backs bowed to pull down 
the Essex Coach for their favorite 
candidate. Of course if any of the 
town, including Petersburg, Hebron. 
Constance, Burlington, Florence, 
Union, Walton, or Verona should 
make an organized effort to land the 
big prize there is not a doubt in the 
world but they could easily put their 
candidate over the top. Er laager, al- 
though not represented by a candid- 
ate has furnished more subscriptions 
to date than any other postofflce on 
the Recorder list. The people of Er- 
langer have shown a very friendly 
spir.. toward the Recorder and if 
the people of Erlanger should take 
the notion they could easily cast the 
deciding vote in this campaign. We 
are proud of the showing that Ec- 
langer has made in our campaign. 

One of the human elements <that 
play, a big part at the close of ev- 
ery campaign is that of family 
pride, and there is no question but 
what that clement i. entering large- 
ly fnto this campaign. In the veins 
of our worker, run. the beet blood 
of good old Boone county. Ju.t 
think there*, the Burn, and the Sael- 
lings; tho Aylora; the Gains, and 
the Berkshire*; the Brown, and the 
Riley.; the Cotton, and the Roberts; 
the Goodridge* and the Finch..; the 

go down to defeat in a bunch like 
this cannot be tainted with dishonor. 
It will*be an honor to have been pit- 
ted against such worthy foes. The 
Recorder is proud of this represent- 
ative bunch of workers. They have 
made a clean caampaign, they have 
fought a fair fight and we confident- 
ly believe that you will never hear 
a whimper from a single individual 
who fails to score the particular cov- 
eted prize that he may now have in 
view. Every one of them would be 
a good winner and likewise a good 
loser. The winner will be entitled to 
the congratulations of every one of 
the entire bunch when his or her 
name is called by the judges on next 
Saturday night and we believe that 
a hearty handclasp and good wishes 
will be forthcoming from all the 

The race will be close. The tend- 
ers are hardworkers and now bend- 
ing all the energy at their command 
to come to the final count with a big 
vote. That is conceded. This should 
by all means be the best week of tho 
entire period for all the candidates 
Hundreds of subscriptions are yet 
obtainable. But very few of our sub- 
scribers have gene the limit. Long 
term subscriptions will count faster 
now than any other kind and the 
wise candidate will look closely af- 
ter subscriptions of two to five 
years. This is the way to build a lead 
or hold the one you have. A few 
subscriptions lost may turn the tide 
against you. You now have a chance 
to earn over two hundred dollars u 
day for the remaining four days of 
the contest. It is now up to the most 
energetic and ambitious who will be 
the one that hits the telling blows 
during these remaining days. The 
sealed box at the bank holds the 
answer to the question.

and leaped into - ' ' ~- with Mr 
Dennler holding the lines and be- 
tween the wheels. 

In a desperate effort to save her 
child from what seemed certain 
death, she held to the lines allow- 
ing the horse, which was a powerful 
one, to drag her almost a hundred 
feet before she was forced to relin- 
quish the reins. 

The horse then increased hi* 
speed and successfully ran a gaunt- 
let of a half mile through the entire 
town, despite a number of attempts 
to stop him enroute. 

At the lower end of town bow 
ever, just as he was about to go ov- 
er the creamery hill into the creek, 
he was halted by Jesse Eddins an) 
William Satchwell, of Florence, who 
had been visiting Mr. Eddins. These 
men in all probability saved tbe 
child from being dragged to a hor- 
rible death, as the buggy would cer- 
tainly have overturned in crossing 
the creek, - which was but a few 
yards distant. 

During the entire journey tho 
child chilled the blood in bystanders 
veins with its incessant screaming, 
however its intuition prompted it to 
maintain a secure hold on the bow 
of the buggy top, which saved it 
from being jolted out. 

Mrs. Dennler was not apparently 
•ery seriously injured though con- j 
siderably bruised. She was eoitainly 
not lacking hVnerve, for despite the 
advice of friends, she calmly climbed 
into the buggy and drove the frac- 
tious horse safely home. Further- 
more she said she was going to drive 
him whenever she desired hereafter, 

a ticket at 2: .; Jrawing. Plenty 
of» tickets have beeu printed so that 
all may have a chance who attend

lington next Saturday. Remember 
that every member of the family is

Last Tuesday afternoon, after an 
all day meeting of county chairmen 
and tbe board of directors of th-j 
cut out organization, the proposed 
plan of eliminating the growing of 
any tobacco in 1925 was called off. 

It was not until about six hours 
had been occupied in deliberation 
that a decision was reached. TI.v 
first vote was 12 to 11 in favor of 
forsaking the plan, but the brief res- 
olution to nullify all of the past four 
or five months work of the organis- 
ation was finally passed unanimous- 
ly. The resolution was worded a.- 
follows : 

"'Be it resolved, That the pledge 
made by the delegate* on Novtmlw 
15th, 1924, are hereby released an J 
the cut-out called off." 

Twenty-three counties voted in 
the meeting, Boono being represent- 
ed by C. C. Sleet, of Beaver Lick, 
who contended for the carrying out 
of the cut-out plans until the very 

It was contended by those who 
favored the above resolution that it 
was useless to attempt the further- 
ance of cut-out plans in face of the 
growing sentiment against it, since 
the recent large sales of burley leaf. 

Claimed folks should keep 
feet dry in winter, but some 
more in need of keeping 
throats dry.

From 1754 to 1763 the colonies 
hesitated to follow up their explora- 
tions in nie Ohio Valley on account 
of the French and Indian war, but 
at its close we find Pennsylvania. 
Maryland and Virginia still encoui 
aging the settlement of thi> vast ter 

Col. Geo. Croghan an Indian 
agent in 1763 visited Big Bone Lick 
and encamped there. Eight year- 
later Virginia sent the following- 
company of men: Thomas Bullit, 
Hancock Taylor. Robert McAfee, 
Simon Kenton and James Douglas. 
We are indebted to Mr. Douglass for 
the* records he kept of what he 
saw at Big Bone Lick. "He says 
the Lick constituted about H) aires, 
bare of trees, no herbage of any 
kind, three flowing springs whose 
waters would produce one bushel of 
salt to every 550 gallons of water, 
also a large number of bones 
strewn over the ground, these bones 
being so large and long that he used 
tho ribs for tent poles." _, 

There ha\e Icen four collection, 
cf these bone. The first collection 
\.as made in .803 by Dr. Goforth 
wjio sent it * > Lngland where it was 
divided in'v three parts viz: One 
pj.'t to the ttoynl College of SoF 
goons in Londor. One part to Dub- 
iiii Irelai d a?.d ihv other to Kden- 
biiigh, So tlaiuf. 

The second collection was made 
by order of President Jefferson in 
1805, this collection was divided be- 
tween the American Phislosophical 
Society and the French Naturalist. 
Mr. Cuvier. The third collection 
1810, by the Western Museum So- 
ciety. The fourth ii\ 1831 by Mr. 
Finnell, who sold the same for $2,- 
000 to a Mr. Graves, who resold to 
a firm in N. Y., for $5,000. It has 
been estimated that at least the 
bones of 100 Mastodons, 25 ele- 
ekphanls and other animals tuts 
collected in the above four collec- 
tions. No place in America (except 
Boone county) can boast of the find- 
ings of remains of pre-historic ani- 
mals as were found in the above 
four collections. L'ndoubtedly these 
animals were in search of salt and 
as Mr. Douglas says, the land being 
marshy they became mired in the 
mud and died of exhaustion, thus 
leaving many of their bones in an 
upright position.

Boone County.) 

I realize this is no New Year's 
news 'that every one has either seen 
it in the dailies or heard it ■" ***- 
phone. But as your if p/vsentativa 
I want '.o make my report. We as 
direct i r. of the cut-out . board had 
realized for several weeks that the 
sentiment had been changing, that 
was why they called so many meet- 
ings to try to stem the tide. But 
with each sale of the pool tobacco 
gave the loose leaf fellows mor; 
pep and encouraged every dumper 
to wat nto raise it until we felt beat 
to eall it off, had it not been for the 
dumper we could- ahve reduced the 
acreage but knowing that they re- 
cognize oo moral law, that when the 
pool m*n would - cut their acreage 
they would double theirs. But pool- 
ers keep u stiff upper lip and hold on^ 
there is being a plan worked out 
to make the pooler on an equality 
with the dumper. But we thought 
best not to adopt that resolution at 
this time as you noticed by the • re- 
port in the dailies. It is not best to 
let the enemy know where you arj 
entrenched and when you are going 
to shoot. So we just adopted a short 
resolutiou declaring tbe cut-out off. 
"The old saying" We must fight tho 
devil with fire. So fellow poolers go 
on with your fanning as usual if 
you quit raising tubacco it will make 
a better market for the dumper. 
But we will meet hi™ "" *h" "pen

The Recokdbk takes this last opportuui-

Salesmanship Club just closing for the ex- 
cellent work they have done to date. 

In selecting the prizes to be awarded, 
only the best were considered and whoever

I a brand new car of sterling worth. The 
Other prizes arc in keeping with the liberal 
lines along which the entire campaign has 
been drawn. 

But few hours remain of the campaign.

Mr. Kusse/1, assisted by Mrs. Russell, 
who have managed the campaign for us, 
have proven themselves fair in all matters 
and the Recorder takes this opportunity 
to publicly acknowledge that the trust 
placed in them has been lived up to to the 

Immediately after the close of the cam-

In conclusion, the Recorder again wish-

them for their work in assisting in the 
building of the wonderful circulation we 
now enjoy and appreciate.

Campaign in 

Judges' Hands 

As one of the judges who will count the 
votes Saturday evening in the Recorder 
Salesmanship Club Campaign, I wish to 
make this final explanation to the candi 

A sealed ballot box has been secured and 
placed in the lobby of the Peoples Deposit 
Bauk, where it will remain until campaign 
ends and will not be opened until 8 o'clock 
Saturday evening, February 14th, at which 
time the votes will be counted. 

The judP^c will begin audit of the re- 
ports of the various contestants at «»i«Kt 
o'clock and will award the prizes accord- 
ing to the published rules of the Recorder 

In making the final count, the additions 
will be made on a standard adding machine 
and all votes will be preserved for future 
audit if the members should be dissatisfied 
and every possible precaution will be taken 
to see that no error is made in any partic- 

From now until the final hour votes will 
be polled in the sealed ballot box at the 
Peoples Deposit Bank and not at the Re- 
corder office, and the standing of members 
will not be made known to anyone until 
the final count on Saturday evening. 

No money will be accepted or votes is- 
sued unless accompanied by subscription 
orders. Only currency or certified checks 
will be accepted in the ballot box. 

Further information in keeping with the 
rules and regulations can be secured from 
the manager at Campaign Department of 
Recorder. NELL H. MARTIN, 

Asst. Cashier Peoples Deposit Bank

The Boone Cpunty Recorder Circulatrhyi 
Campaign is now in its final stages. No 
collections are being accepted at the Cam- 
paign Headquarters this week. All reports 
are made in special envelopes and are be- 
ing deposited in the sealed Ballot Box at 
the Peoples Deposit Bank, Burlington, x 

The campaign is now in the hands of the 
judges who will count the votes/end make 
the awards Saturday night at eight p. m., 
February 14th. 

Hundreds of new subscriptions have been 
added to the subscription list of the Recor- 
der until there is no doubt of its superior" 
ty as an advertising medium to the bus- 
iness m«>« -co -jg, Kenton ovtuies. 

Teeming with live local news from every 
section of Boone county, The Recorder 
is without doubt, the leading weekly news- 
paper of Northern Kentucky. You can 
make it a better paper still with your co- 
operation and good will. 

It has been a pleasure to have worked 
with the energetic and ambitions members 
of our Salesmanship Campaign. All the 
workers have shown a commendable spirit 
of fairness, kindliness and good will. Their 
work has been an accomplishment fo be 
proud of and we feel sure that the Sales- 
manship experience it has taught will be of 
untold value in years to come. 

During the several weeks that Mrs. Rus- 
sell and I have been in Burlington we have 
learned to like the town, its people and the 
vast country surrouncing it. It has been 
a pleasure to have lived in the ''best s 
town in the U. S. A." That pleasure 
linger long in our memory. 

The race will soon be over. To the win- 
ners—congratulations, to those who go 
down in defeat, we can truthfully say that- 
they fought a good fight, and especial cdrrK, 
mendation is due those who are game to the 
finish— M. B. RUSSEt£r,-Ctub Manager

Last week's issue of the RECOR-

necessity of an organization having 
tor its purpose the mutual protec- 
tvn of two branches of our prop- 
erty, namely, sheep and dogs. 

Our citizens as a whole pay taxes 
on sheen, why net on rtogs? Th? 
sheeps has its place in life, so has 
the dog. Where would the suffering 
victims of diphtheria in Nome Alas- 
ka, have been today had it not been 
for the heroic efforts of a dauntless 
, dog team? Correspondingly the dog 
; has its place in our life in this coun- 
' try. 

The sheep owners deserve protec- 
I tion — they pay for it, and likewise

and is deserving of a solution. 

We have our good roads associa- 
tions for the solution of road prob- 
lems, the Red Cross for the solution 
of humanitarian problems, why not 
an association for an efficient solu- 
tion of this problem? 

Von may ask — what would be the 
plan of operation of this association? 
Ask the members of the past few- 
grand juries or an answer to this. 
We merely suggest one plan, but 
there are several. Here it is briefly:

Pine -Tar and Honey 
Still Best for Chest 
Colds an d Coogns 

Our mothers andgrandrao there would 
never be without pine tar syrup in the 
house for coughs, chest colds, etc. This 
was many years ago, but modern medi- 
cine has never been able to improve on 

thi*time-te«tedrem«<ly. Doctors My the pine 
tar is hard to beat for quickly loosening and 
removing the pfaktn and oongoatjon that ate 
the actual cause oTthe cough. At the aame 
t .me pine-tar and honey soon soothe and heal 
all irritation and nominee 

The kind that has been used with never fail- 
ing success In thousanda of families tor years 
is that known as Dr. Bell's Pine-Tar Honey. 
This is scientifically compounded of Just the 
right proportions of pine-tar, honey and other 
quick acting, healing ingredients which the 
best doctors have found to aid in quick relief. 
It contains absolutely no opiates, narcotics or 
harmful drugs, so can be given to young chil- 
dren -fine forspaamodic croup. It tastes good, 
too. If you want the best, a medicine that often 
stops the severest cough overnight, be sure 
you get Dr. Boll's Pine-Tar Honey. It costs 
only 30c at any good druggists.

The Recorder Stand* For 




Mrs. Lizzie Hawkins Winston. 

A meeting was held in Falmouth 
tn Saturday, Jan. 24th, for the 
purpose of organizing a Sheep and 
Dog Owners Protective Association. 
A number of farmers were present 
and succeeded in effecting an or- 
ganization which was Bet to work at 
once. The first move of importance 
was the appointment of canvassers 
from each precinct, with instructions 
to list all dogs in" their districts and 
report them to the association. 

This movement may or may not 
prove a success, but whether it does 
or not, we think it a step in the 
right direction. Each Boone county 
grand jury for the past two year- 
has spent a part of its time in try- 
ing to work out some practical plan 
of caring for the sheep and dot? 
situation, but have as yet been un- 
able to solve it 

It would be well for Boone coun-. 
ty to follow the example of Pendle- 
ton county,' and try another course. 



Mis. Lizzie Hawkins Winston was 
born near Ghent, Carroll county, 
Ky., Oct., 12th, 1840.Leaving hot 
mother when quite young, her indul- 
gent father bestowed upon her the 
loving care of both and gave her 
the priceless gift of a splendid edu- 
cation. She was married to Johv 
B. Winston of Boone county, Ky., 
in 1871 who preceded her to th.; 
grave seventeen years ago. To thii 
union five children were born. Mrs. 
('. E. Stephens, Mrs. E. A. Threlkald 
Albert S. Winston and two little 
boys who died in infancy. Since his 
death she has made her home with 
her two daughters, who did every- 
thing in their power to make life en- 
joyable, which was unusually free 
from care. At the age of fourteen 
she united with the Baptist church. 
She was devoted to her church and 
the cause of the Master. Having 
known her intimately, the greater 
part of my life, I can not remember 
once ever ahving been in her com 
pany when she did not dwell upon 
the spiritual life, admonishing all tc 
give their service to Jesus. She was 
a constant reader of the Bible. Hav- 
ing read it many times over. Four 
times straight through. The influence 
of this beautiful christian life will 
continue throughout the ages, foi 
"No life can be pure in its purpose 
and strong in its strife. And all life 
n «i be p»*;er and str.onff«>- ♦hereby." 

For two years she has been in 
failing health. During the' time, three 
devoted daughters and their families 
and her son were untiring in their 
efforts to minister to her every want 
and give relief, so far as it was pos- 
sible. On Feb., 4th, 1925, her spirit 
passed from earth to be with Him, 
whom she loved to serve. Funeral 
services were conducted Friday af- 
ternoon Feb., 6th, at Petersburg 
Baptist church by her pastor Rev. 
J. W. Campbell in the presence of 
many relatives and friends, after 
which she was laid to rest beside her 
husband in Petersburg cemetery. 

Besides the two daughters, son, 
son-in-law and three grandchildren, 
Roberta, Beulah and Eugenie there 
are many others by whom she will 
be sadly missed. 

In her passing we can but recall 
the woids of Bryant, admonishing 
that we — 

. ."So live that when thy summon* 
come* to join 

. .The innumerable caravan that 
move* to that mysterious realm 
where each •ball take s 

. . Hi* chamber in the silent hall* of 
death, Thou go, not like the quarry

. Scourged to hi* dungeon, but •at- 
tained and aoothed by an unfalter- 
ing tru»t, approach thy grave. . . . 

Like one who wrap* the drapery 
of hi* couch about him and lie* down

An, exchange prints the following 
experience of a man wwho took ad- 
vantage of all devices advertised to 
save the operating expense of his 
Ford. "He installed a carburete- 
that was guaranteed to save 20 per 
cent on fuel. Then he put in spec 
ial park plugs that were guaranteed 
to save 20 per cent. Then he added 
an intake super-heater that was guar 
anteed to save 20 per cent. He next 
added a special rear axle that was 
also guaranteed to svae 20 per cent. 
He put on high pressure 'cords' that 
promised a 20 per cent saving. Ho 
then put on a radiator cap that cut 
another 20 per cent. And now with 
a fuel economy of 120 per cent, he 
has to" stop every hundired mile.; 
and bale fuel out of the gas tank to 
keep it from running over!"

An Oklahoma editor, just about 
ready to send his forms to press, , 
"pied" a couple of articles, one con- 
cerning a public sale and the other 
a write-up of a wedfling. He asked 
the office devil to get the two to-

Here is how he put the two to- 
gether, and the mixture was not 
known to the editor until an angry 
preacher and the mother of the bridf 
appeared on the scene:

With only one living ex-Presi 
dent of the United States, Judge : 
William H. Taft, the office has come! 
to be looked on as most taxing and j 
calculated to sap the vitality of the ; 
holder. This recalls that Kentucky , 
has six ex-rrovernors, they being: in i 
the order of service: W. H. Taylor, '■ 
J. C. W. Beckham, Augustus E. 
Wilson, A. O. Stanley, James D. 
Black and Edwin P. Morrow. 

Mr. Beckham became governor 
in 1900, and Mr. Morrow served a 
term that expired in 1923. Only 
one Kentucky governor, serving in 
the last quarter of a century has 
died. He was James B. McCreary, 
who for more than forty years en- 
joyed the distinction of being an 
ex-governor. This was due to the 
fact that he served a previous term 
as governor in the latter part of the 
70s. — Cynthiana Democrat.

(By Peter Keegan) 
Special Correspondent of the RE- 

Political Drama on a grand tcale 
is about the best description of this 
conflict between Senator Brrton K. 
Wheeler of Montana and the Repub- 
lican party. In the beginning this 
fight- was meerly Wheeler's leader- 
ship of the Senatorial investigation 
which turned things upside down in 
the Department of Justice and drove 
Harry Daugherty out of the Cabinet. 
Wheeler was taking the offensive 
then. Then Daugherty put Wheee'r 
on the defensive by indicting him in 
Montana under a statute forbidding 
officers of the Government to re- 
ceive outside remuneration for serv- 
eding their constituents. It is alleg- 
ed that Wheeler was paid to make 
certain appearances before federal 
departments in the matter of leases 
on public lands. With this case pend- 
ing against him, Wheeler joined th 
LaFollette forces in the last cam 
paign and ran for Vice-President, 
returning, after his defeat to tru 
Democratic fold, where he has wel- 
comed regardless of temporary de- 

All that ii hiitory now, but it haj 

an important bearing upon the pres- 
ent attack of Senator J. Wahh 
Wheeler's colleague, against the ele- 
vation of Attorney General Harlan 
Stone to the United States Supemro 
Court. Walsh is opposing confirm«- 
tion of the Stone nomination by the 
Senate on the ground that the At- 
torney Genearl is "persecuting '' 
Senator Wheeler. This Stone denies 
of course, although he has announc 
ed that he intends to bring another 
indictment against Wheeler in n 
case involving a conspiracy to de 
fraud the Government. Prom Mf. 
Stone's point of view, there is noth- 
ing fie can do but go through with 
this case even if it costs him a seat

A considerable increase in hoy 
production next fall, and a corn aero 
age about the same as in 1924 are 
recommended by the United State; 
Department of Agriculture in the 
second section of Its annual out- 
look report released today. * 

Beef cattle prices this year should 
average higher than last year, and 
those for sheep and wool should be 
at least on a par with those of 192 J 
the report says. 

Dairymen are urged to make no 
further expansion in their industry. 
Higher egg prices may be expected 
during the season of flush produc- 
tion this than last , but poultry pric- 
es may be lower. 

"Hog producers," the report says 
"enter 1925 with 18 per cent fewer 
hogs than a year ago and there is 
every indication that prices during 
the next 18 months will be higher 
than at any time since 1920. Six to 
eight million wewer pigs will be 
born this spring than last spring 
Fewer sows will farrow next fall 
than fan-owed last all if producers 
respond to the unfavorable relation 
of corn and hog prices as they have 
done in the past. 

"While the 1924 corn crop will 
probably be well cleaned up an in- 
creased acreage in 1925° does not 
appear advisable in view of the in- 
dicated reduction in the feeding de- 
mand. Stocks of old corn on farms 
are likely to be smalller than usuai 
in the beginning of the new cron 
year 1925, but it appears that not 
more than an averaeg crop will be 
required to supply the needs of the 
country for both feed and comme. 1 
cial purposes. 

Higher Beef Cattle Price* Ex- 

'"Prices for beef cattle for 1925 
souhld average somewhat higher 
than for 1924. The industry is grad- 
ually working into a more favorabb 
position due to the relation of beef 
to competing commodities, especial- 
ly pork; improved industrial condi- 
tions, and in no small measure to 
the cattleman's own sacrifices. Mar- 
ket receipts will probably be some 
what smaller than in 1924. All con- 
ditions indicate that the long-time 
outlook or the industry is even more 

Two charming additions have been 
made to the ladies of the diplomat - 
ie corps with the carnival of Emile 
Daeschner, the new French Ambas- 
sador. Daeschner has two daughters 
both wx whom have completed their 
formal education in France and 
England and who are of marriage- 
able age. They will be introduced 
to society at the next White House 
reception. Daeschner is proving tj 
be a worthy successor to Ambassa- 
dor Jusserand who has retired after 
a quarter of a century service as 
the diplomatic representative of his 
government in Washington. 

Herbert Hoover hai decided .to 

stay on the job in the Department 
of Commerce for another four years. 
President Coolidge tried to shift 
him over to the Agriculture Depart 
ment, but Hoover wouldn't go. Ho 
realized that bureaucrats had such 
a stranglehold there- that 1tr woulJ 
he a killing job to root them out — 
the kind of a job tath he does not 
want just now, when a fight would 
be certain to create fo rhim and in- 
terfere with his presidential aspira- 
tions. Hoover has won the confidence 
of the business men of the country 
and he will no doubt be one of the 
leading Republican candidates for 
the presidenutial nomination in 
the event that Mr. Coolidge decides 
he has had enough. 

Bticomb Slemp quit at the Pres- 
ident's secretary sooner than he had 
intended to, chiefly because one of 
the New York papeers got hold of 
the story of his resignation. March 
4th had been set as the date for 
Slemp's retirement following his 
row with Butler at the Republican 
National Convention last spring. A; 
soon as the story of his forthcoming 
resignation got into print, Slemp 
made preparations to get away. His 
successor is Everett Saunders, for- 
mer Congressman from Indiana and 
One of those prominently mentioned 
ar President** Cootldge'S running 
made last year. 

Advisee Against Expansion in 

... . . 
— ...jring 

"Further expension in -dairying in 
1925 seems inadvisable. A recovery 
in prices of dairy products could 
'—••"- ie ~<tpecttd should the num- 
ber of milk COWS bo further increas- 
ed. Domestic produetbn appears a.l 
equate, and the foreign dairy situa 
tion is such as to keep world mar- 
ket prices low and thus limit the 
height to which our butter pricr: 
Cili ri'" without bringing in fore ; *n 
: utter. 

Favorable Outlook for Sheep and 


"Prospects for the sheep industry 
mi 1925 appear favorable. The world 
wool outlook ar.d the prospective 
ii'eat situation in this country prom- 
ise prices for 19.15 at least on a par 
with those of 19E4. There does not 
appear to be any immediate danger 
of overproduction, as the increase 
in the number of sheep has as yet 
been only slight. 

Outlook for Poultry 

"The outlook of the poultry in- 
dustry during 1925 from the stand- 
point of market egg prices is favor- 
able while from the standpoint of 
market poultry prices it is not so 
encouraging. Ie seems probable that 
higher egg prices will prevail during 
the season of flush production this 
ye a r than last. With an abnorma+- 
ly large carry-over of dressed poul- 
try in storage it seems probable that 
lower prices on market poultry may 
prevail for at least the first half oc" 
the year. 

Colt Production Declines 

"There are as many horses and 
mules of working age on farms is 
will he needed or the coming sea- 
son, and average prices of work 
stock are lower than they were a 
year ago. A deciedd decrease in colt 
production during the p"ast few 
years, however, points to a future 
shortage of good work stock. This 
shortage is likely to be acute dur 
ing the time that colts foaled this 
year and next, or even young/horses 
purchased now are still in active per

Stopped Quickly By 

Mrs. B. E. Aylor, of Burlington, 
entered a pen of White Leghorns in 
a contest at Murphysboro, 111. Com- 
peting with 54 other pens, her flock 
won first plsce for November. She 
also held five of the first six places 
for individual layers. Unless some- 
thing unforseen happens, she stands 
an excellent chance of leading the 
year in this contest. 

E. G. Stephenson, of Florence,

In the pursuance of their individ- 
ual campaign for votes, they have 
learned much in the art of salesman- 
ship that will be of inestimable value 
to them in future years. They have 
mude many new and pleasant ac- 
quaintances. Many of them formed 
new ideas along business lines and 
most of them have developed a keen 
3ense of observation that will pay 
them many a future dividend. 

The competition in this race was a 
splendid training and a valuable ex-

Friday afternoon, conducted by the 
Pastor, Rev. P. G. Gillespie, after 
which the remains were taken to the

Philip Taliaferro, undertaker of

for the second and third honors af

The judges were not satisfied lo 
leave without a complete, re-check 
of the volume of reports of these 
two candidates, which required cot' 
siderablc time. A thorough re-count 
however failed to alter their re- 
spective positions in the race, and 
they were so announced. 

The patience and thoroughness of 
the judges was demonstrated in 
this magnanimous effort to render 
an absolutely correct report. Their 
selection- proved admirable, and 
this office extends to them its moat 
sincere thanks. 

Nothing contributed more to the 
expediency and accuracy of the final 
count than the systematic adding 

That unusual interest was taken 
in the outcome of * the campaign, 
equalling that taken in the last pres- 
idential election, was evident from 
the large number of telephone in- 
quiries. From early afternoon until 
the final count was completed, per- 
sons in all parts of the territory cov- 
ered by the Recorder phoned to the* 
office for information as to the pro- 
gress of their favorite club members 
and other data on the marathon. 

Not within the history of this 
newspaper has a circulation cam- 
paign attracted the enthusiasm and 
widespread interest that was shown 
in the race which ended at 8 o'clock 
last Saturday night. 

The last week of the, campaign 
was especially notable. Rivalry was 
intense but friendly, and the Recor- 
der feels assured that the success 
ful ones merited the prizes for 
which they fio earnestly strived. The 
number of votes turned in by club 
members and their friends was fair- 
ly staggering, and when the com- 
mittee of judges met to undertake 
the task of counting them it would 
have been discouragingly laborious 
but for the keen interest even they 
felt in the campaign and tho know- 
ledge they had of the popularity of 
the movement in every section of 
the territory.

(Winner of Third Prize) 

All Couldn't Win 

Of course, it is inevitable that in 
any campaign all cannot win the 
big prizes. Club members under- 
stood that when they entered. Right 
or wrong, civilization seems to have 
accepted and applied nature's rule 
of '"the survival of the fittest." To 
accomplish a given purpose, some 
effort is necessary, und fortune 
seems to have lavished her richest 
gifts upon those who are equipped 
with energy sufficient to carry out 
the mandate of ambition. 

Yet to the club members wh 1 
worked so energetically during th-- 
campaign but failed to win the Es- 
sex Coach, the Recorder extends 't 
genuine regrets. Were it possible, it 
would gladly remember all club 
members with n car. If the thanks 
of this paper can in a measure les- 
sen the regrets of the capital prize 
losers, it is theirs. The Recorder ftp. 
preciates the kindly feeling and to* 
good will of every club member who 
entered, whether they have 10.000 
votes or a hundred times 10,000. 
This paper hopes that . every club 
member who takes possession of the 
prises'.won by them by right of eon 
quest, will in turn be proud of their 
sward. We huve dealt with ladic> 
end gentlemen. Our relations havu

Father and Son Week, February 
22 fto 28, was instituted by the Y. M. 
C A. at Providence, R. I. in 1907 for 
kfce purpose of bringing fathers and 
•k>*b together for mutual understand- 
ing and for the development of right 
•hmracter in the sons. But the father 
and son movement has extended be 
road the bounds of the Y. M. C. A. 
aad in many cities and towns it is 
sponsored by civic organizations. Boy 
Soeute, councils, churches and Sun 
day Schov'*:. 

Whatever may be said about the 
fine enduring influence of mother in 
the life of a boy — and surely too 
much cannot he said — it is an indis- 
putable fact that if the father is 
not on th« ijob, or rather hasn't been 
on the job in the case of the grow 
mg lad, there is danger ahead. Tha 
signal shows red. 

The boy will speak as the father 
walks and notice all that dad is do- 
ing or has done. Yet while the lad 
will glory in the father's physi c al 
or mental attainments, and will say ! 
little about father's spiritual life.

This group wants to amend the

This clique would not permit the

. In this manner I wish to publicly 
<ongTatulate the winner and at the 
tame time to thank, my friends for 
rheir support in the campaign just 
closed. I especially want to thank 
the good people on Route N'o. 2 out 
. f Burlington, as well as those of 
Bclleview "and Carlton precincts, 
which was formerly my home, for 
without their support 1 certainly 
/ '.uld not have remained in the race. 

keep them then — that, there is n.. 
material differe nce of the clay thai 
you. I or the other friends were 
formed from — we came to this old 
foot-stool without anything, and it 
is certain, and positive, that we are 
going to leave it the same way. This 
old Habitation was made, and per- ! 
fectly too, within six days — not in 
three, and, it is stated as a positive \ 
law of nature that "man must earn j 
His bread," not by a soft sincurian ; 
job. at a large salary, huf'hy the i 
sweat of His Brow," while He is 
His own "free moral agent," to do, | 
or not to do, He must suffer a pen- j 
alty for violating the laws of na- i 
ture. Now girls, do not get the fool- 
ish and fallacius notion, that your 
pretty hands were only intended for 
the keys of the piano-forte, or Ra- j 
dio dial nobs, I know it is nice, and \ 
considered lady-like, to be familiar I 
with "flats" "sharps" and, an accom j 
plishment to be able to play with , 



1 desire in this humble way -to 
ihank those who helped me so gen- 
erously in the Recorder contest 
which closed last Saturday night 
with the announcement that I had 
won the Couch. 1 also wish to con- 
gratulate those splendid worker; 
who finished beneath me in the race, 
tor the clean-cut campaign whicli 
they conducted. 



I desire to thank all my friends 
'or the help they gave me in th-.» 
Recorder Campaign, and I wish to 
congratulate Mrs. Thos. Hensley for 
tier success in winning the Essex 



1 wish to thank my loyal friends 
und n laiives in Boone county and 
elsewhere for the help they have 
riven me in the Recorder Cam p aign. 


Coming as a distinct surprise was 
the rather sudden departure of Mr, 
,nd Mrs. M. B. Russell, who so effi- 
• iently managed our campaign just 
tloeed. Mr. Russell has had a cam- 
paign awaiting him for two weeks, 
v in response to several urgent tele- 
crams lu«iWfr* compelled to leave

Russell said when- leaving that he 
would certainly be more than pleas 
ed with B campaign as successful as 
he one JO st dosed here.

A knowledge of the value of cer- 
eals may be, found in the earliest re- 
cords of mankind; Hreif %\ - t-i-f 'i was 
appreciated by the Ramans who link- 
ed them nfter Geres, the Goddess ot 
Agricullii'-o. Anvnij the cereal •; no.*: 
commonly used in feeding eliildivi: 
may be mentioned, whole wheat, oat- 
meal. corn meal, rice and grit.- - . 

The cereal grain consist of the 
husk of outer covering which eon- 
tains mineral mailers; cellulose, 
which is valuable as roughage to 
promote bowel action, and the germ 
which contains the growth promoting 
portion of the grain known as vita- 
mins. Formerly it was thought that, 
vitamin were found in the husk only 
but the recent studies of Dr. McCol- 
lum have proven that vitimins arc 
found in the kernel or germ. The 
germ is usually removed with the 
bran and classed as "Shorts" and 
used as cattle foods. Thus the ani- 
mals receive the growth promoting 
parts and children receive the life- 
less starchy parts. 

Prepared cereals have little vita- 
min value but children will eat oat- 
meal or cream of wheat with bran 
cooked in it and the use of bran is 
much to be preferred to cathartics. 
Whole wheat, graham and brown 
breads should be given children in« 
preference to the white breads. Toast 
made of whole wheat bread is espec- 
ially desirable for the young child 
and may be used in place of crack- 
ers or Zwiebach. 

The cooking of cereals is of great 
imrnwanw Cooked cereals are much

Armour and Jarecki Agents, 



Have you ever "borrowed money?' 
If the P. T. A. was assured of ev- 
ery person being in attendance, wh-> 
had "borrowed money," they shonld 
worry over a crowd when they pre- 
sent their play at the local theater 
in Burlington on Saturday evening, 
Feby. 28th. 

The title of course is '"borrowed 
money," and caste is working inces- 
santly in an effort to make it a suc- 
cess. A new stage has been con- 
structed, and rehearsals will be held 
every night the coming week. 

Two colored characters wiU en 
deavor to furnish the "laughs" but 
of course you must not expect an Al 
Jolsan performance. Miss Sally 
would have trouble imitating him 
anyhow, because "Al" seldom wears 
a dress.

If I should die tonight there still would be 
One favor left — one pleasure left to me, 

And that to come fron< out my narrow cell 
la spirit form and see and wish yon well— 

To stand beside and hear yon jest and puip, 
And feel again your wholesome fellowship— 

To see your smiles and know your hearts rejoice, 
And hear your songi and raise my silent voles*. 

If you should die tonight what would there be 
Of fellowship and happiness for me? 

Except, perhaps to sit alone and' stare 
Across the board and see your vacant chair, 

And, in the smoke, to see your kindly face, 
Or hear your cheer resounding through the space 

Of Memory, and while my fancies stir, 
To dream alone of happy times that were. 

D se m e most go ami some moat stay behind— 
If Fat* mast cleave tho friendly ties that bind 

How hotter far that Death should bacon on. 
Than life should last with love and frtendahip gone I

High school and college students 
of today are being taught many ideas 
about country life that are different 
from conditions that actually exist. 
They have as yet little chance to put 
these ideas Into effect. In some fam- 
ilies, these propositions are already 
accepted, and one cnn Be< * tn<> n> 
suits in their modern ways of work- 
ing and living. But in many others, 
the folks are living in about the MUM 
old way. 

Just wait until this young crowd 
get to running things, and see if it 
does not make u big difference. The

field agent in animal husbandry for 
the College of Agriculture, ..ho is 
encouraging lamb standardization. 

"Prosper ts were probal'h never 
brighter for good prices for good 
Iambs." Mr. Miller deelned. "Pack 
ers predict that good lambs next 
spring and summer will comma ml 16 
or 17 cents a pound. Some persona 
''think that prices will even be better 
than that. There is apparently n.» 
question that Kentucky farmers who 
have good lambs will get a irood 
price for them. 

"Quality, however, is going to 
count for more than ever this year, 
according to packers. There will be 
a big demand for the best quality 'if 
lambs," Mr. Miller declared. "Pack- 
sharp discrimination. Hence, care of 
ewes and lambs should be emphasiz- 
ed this spring. Docking and caster* 
ating are going to be worth more 
this year than ever before. " 

Fifty-two lamb improvenuir con-

College of Agriculture, buyer

empahsizing the need of prodiu ing

and docking and castration. 

Along with bettor bred and S'e.l 
sheep, the growing of more feed will 
be discussed by George Roberts an:i 
Ralph Kenney of the College and 
others. Kentucky farmers, in order 
to reap the highest profits, and at 
the same time build up their soil, 
should use more home-grown feeds, 
it is said. Sheepmen who produce

It has been the fault of many so- 
called "booster" campaigns. that 
they considered only the develop- 
ment of their own municipality. 
They often fail to recognize that 
iheir own prosperity depends on 
development of the rural section in 
which they are located. 

Thirteen counties in western Vir- 
ginia comprising the Shenandoah 
valley, have recently united in a 
plan for developing the resources of 
this tegion. They recognizez that 
agriculture i- their basic industry, 
and they are working to develop the 
form of farm industry best suite i 
to each particular locality. They 
held an exhibition of imported sheep 
in one county to promote better 
breeding, ajid in the fruit raising 
regions better methods of handling 
such products were demonstrated. 

One good feature of this move- 
ment is that Chambers of Com 
merer in various cities are revising 
then lists of officers, so as to place 
representatives of farm organiza- 
tions upon these boards. This is a

Grady Sellards, field agent in ani- 
mal husabndry for the Kentucky 
College of Agriculture. "The feed- 
ing of the sow during the gestation 

period is very important," he says, I datol costs only about 
"because it largely determine.; ! much as dynamite, according 
whether the pigs are to be bar n i County Aj""U. J. E. MeClure.

Some farmers follow the practice «>:' 
feeding bred sows a corn ration. In 
case this is done, it should not be 
continued for more than 2 months 
after the sows are bred, which tinn 
tankage or skimmilk should be ad- 
ded to the ration, because 9-10 of 
the embryonic development of th" 
pigs place during this period. Tank 
age and skim milk supply the ele- 
ments in which corn is low. In 
event no pasture is available, as is 
some times the case during winter 
months, it is a good practice to keep 
btiore the sows a rack of leguir.t 
hay, such as alfalfa, or red clove' 
or soybean hay. Hogmen find that 
alfalfa of the second or third ratting 
which is cured up bright and green 
is preferable. Alfalfa furnishes ele-

ing. Furteen armers set out new or- 
chards last year, and many more are

A total of 1,000 trees were planted 
last year. Several pruning, spraying 
and grafting demonstrations were 
conducted by County Agent VY. R, 
Reynolds last year. 



A spirit of optimism 
among farmers attending the recent 
Farm and Home Convention at the 
College of Agriculture. Stockmen 
and farmers on the- program spoke 

They expessed satisfaction with 
grain and hay prices, and said that 
they expected increasingly good 
prices for livestock and dairy pro- 

Beef cattle producers were es- 
pecially optimistic, declaring that 
indications point to a general re- 
vival in the ndustry. Sheepmen are 
prospering an ddairymen are not dis 
eouraged. J. H. McClain South Car- 
olina dairy farmer declared that 
Kentucky farmers can successfully 
compete with any Other section in 
the dairy business provided they 
grow most of their feeds, keep bet- 
ter cows and produce good cfuality 

Senator Henry Caywood, North 
Middletown, Ky., and F. C. Giltnei, 
Eminence, Ky., well known stock- 
men, declared that they arc convinc- 
ed that the beef cattle business is o' 
the upturn, ith prospects of increas- 
ingly good prices. 'Speakers said that 
they can see no slump ahead for the 
sheep business, but on the other 
hand, only a growing market fur 
Kentucky lambs.'

One of the old customs of Candle* 
mas Day, February 2, in Scotland, 
**as that on this occasion the pupils 
in schools were supposed to make 
small presents of money to their 
teachers. Sixpence and a shilling wexa 
the most common sums given, but 
some would offer a half crownw or i. 
c rown (about 62 cents or $1.26). 
Tin -e gifts would seem small in this 
country, but they were valued in 
frugal old Scotland. 

I'robably teachers were so poorly 
paid in that country, thatt such a 
gift was very welcome. Some migh' 
sny that fn many American commun- 
ities where teachers are poorly paid, 
it would be a good idea io take uup i 
coil.cction for them at some fixed 
lime each year. Very likely that may 
bS'done in some cases. It may be thu. 
only way to scure a decent wage for 
trail, crs in some places.

Some farmers hay have had the 
idea in the old days, that a Farmer'.-;

together mostly for talk, but it did 
net secure many practical results. 
They would think differently if they 
could watch some of the hundreds of

Not merely do these clubs carry 
on social activities that make them 
a pleasant center for winter even-

in many cases for improving the

will encourage their membership to 
take up new lines of production, or

Another sad death occurred in 
Burlington early last Friday morn 
ing, when Susan Elizabeth Acru, 
better known as "Miss Bettie" de- 
parted this life after an illness of 
very short duration. 

Her demise wns caused by pneu- 
monia, brought on by water being 
spilled on the front of her garment, 
when she arose for a drink m> the 
night after her sister's funerul. 

The death was doubly sad to the 
reladves on account of the fact that 
another sister, Mrs. Agnes ('lore, 
was just laid to her last rest le.-v 
than a week previous to her death.

daughter of James Madison Acra 
and Susan Acra. She was born near

Members of the 1925 class of the 
Petersburg High School presented a 
splendid play very cleverly last Fri- 
day night in the school auditorium. 
An excellent caste, under the com 
petent direction of Prof. R. H. Car- 
ter, who was also a member of the 
caste, deserves especial commend- 
ation for this excellent little produc- 

The young orchestra, which visit- 
ed Burlington last week, rendered 
the music and they were at their 
best. A special feature was a story 
teller in the person of Cecil Brady, 
six years old, who furnish quite 
a bit of merriment. 

It was the kind of a play that 
keeps you interested from start to 
finish, without a lagging moment, 
as everyone present will testify. 

They expect to present this play 
in Burlington in the near future, 


It has long been said there is 
nothing quite so inspiring as music. 
Such being the case congratulations 
are in order for practically every 
High School in Boone County. 

When 1 started community meet? 
ings this winter, Grant was the only 
High School to volunteer with some 
excellent talent. Union had a fine 
class "of musicians being developed. 
When Petersburg found -that I was 
very fond of music they brought out 
an orchestra that made me think 
they had i -erything in the county 
bested, [frfaron recently organized 
an orchestra which hns grown to 33 
members. Florenco has 'been devel- 
oping good, I hear, but they have 
not made their debut as yet. Wal- 
ton organized last week and Verona 
this week. Burlington also is devel- 
oping an orchestra. 

With all these good orchestras 
started it would seem to me, that we 
will soon have to pot on a good, old 
time, fiddlers contest.

(By Prof. A. M. Yealey) 


The first settlement in Boone 
county was Tanner's Station (Peters 
burg) in the year 1783. Rev. John 
Tanner the first Baptist preacher 
came here from Pennsylvania, and 
after erecting a cabin, had the fol- 
lowing men and their families come 
and assist him in clearing the for- 
est : John Hindman, Wm. West, Jno. 
Seft and John Simson. After a stay 
of „eight weeks they had prepared 
f>0 acres of land for cultivation and 
they left for Ohio to .assist some 
friends of Mr. Tanner as he also had 
two stations in Southwestern Ohio, 
where he preached. While absent 
from Tanner's Station and on a 
mission in Ohio the Indians made 
his two boys John Jr., age 9 and 
Edward age 15 prisoners. Edward 
escaped about two weeks after be- 
ing captured but John was not heart! 
of for 26 years. He spent his life 
among the Indians and in 1818 was 
employed by the U. S. Government 
at Sault St. Marie. Michigan as an 

From 1783 to 179-1 it was very 
dangerous (on account of the In- 
dians) for Mr. Tanner to preach 
only in fortified stations. He had 
three stations, two in Southwestern 
Ohio antl the one at Petersburg, but 
after the crushing defeat of the- 
Shawnee Indians by Geo. Wayn in 
1794 which stopped their incursion 
into Kentucky as an army, they still 
molested the whites in Boone and 
the adj?5tntng CoimtreB. -Tu~sto-rr this 
the white people formed committees 
and took up subscriptions and gav i 
to every white man that took an 
Indian scalp with the right ear ap- 
pendant $13C, if he was a subscrib- 
er to the fund. Non-subscribers were 
given $100. This had the desired 
effect and the Indians no longer 
bothered the settlers and it became 
safe for Mr . Tanner to establish 
missions and he had Rev. Lewis 
Dewees also from Pennsylvania to 
assist him and the tirst Baptist 
church that was constituted in 
Boone county was at Bullittsburg in 
the year 1794 and its first mem'ovr> 
were Rev. I^'wis Dewees — Ino. Hall 
and wife, Chichester Mathews and 
wife, Joseph Smith and wife. Un- 
doubtedly the above families had 
taken up claims in the North Bend 
bottoms. Rev. Tanner remained at 
Petersburg until 1798 (the year 
Boone county wan organized an i 
county) thence to New Madrid, Mit-
